Hey, maybe you didn’t even notice, because everyone is so darn busy! Many good things happening in the Arts!
1: Art Fair Jackson Hole happening again this weekend, starting today! Runs through Sunday. I think the Art Association still needs volunteers, drop Steph Fellows a line at [email protected], or call her cell phone: 303-250-3508. I’m volunteering Saturday, 3:30-6:00 p.m. See you there!
2: Exact wording from J.H. Public Art Initiative press materials reads:
TOWN COUNCIL APPROVES OPEN AIR EXHIBITION! “Imagine discovering the art of our day on Snow King, in Town or on Pearl Street, free and accessible to all people! The Mayor and Town Council granted permission to the Public Art Initiative to host an exhibition of museum quality work in public space. Artwork will be professionally curated and changes every 18 months. The Town will provide staff support and assistance insuring the art located on public property. We hope to start this program next summer”.
