The website for PARK(ing) Day explains that the day is “an annual, worldwide event that inspires city dwellers everywhere to transform metered parking spots into temporary parks for the public good.”  The point is simply to create a “temporary public…space for people to enjoy.

Changing the Look of the Blog

Changing the blog look is super easy and I think we should experiment a bit with the style and organization we like.  Just like the blog title, the theme can change easily.  Look under the “appearance” side bar and click on “themes.”  You’ll see that its really easy to change themes, and all the posts and pages we have created so far will transform into the new theme.  Check it out.

Also I love you all, last night was a great art night. So many ideas are moving along and interrelating, connecting and growing. This process is awe-some and feels so tangible! I feel energized from this group.  This is my love letter to art night, to art night people.  Wednesday August 11th 2010.


Here are the photos we have been sent so far!
