A Word from Andreyna
Hey everyone, so this is Andreyna with the first actual blog by one of the muralistics about what's going on ! How exciting right ? Well sort of, I can start off by saying that today's guest speakers which included Simran Sethi and muralist Dave Lowenstein were both really interesting individuals. They were both very lively and seemed really passionate about what they did which made it all that much more fun. We listened to Simran talk about what she does and how she is way behind sustainability in whatever way people want to apply it. She explained what it meant to her and how she was thrilled to hear about our project and how we are applying sustainability in our own way. Muralist Dave Lowenstein gave us some tips on making our mural sustainable and shared some cool stories of some of his past projects. Although towards the end they repeatedly got cut off so we could hear nothing of what they were saying, they were some really cool speakers. As for Art hop tonight, oh what a night ! We hadn't been out there handing out flyers and info to all of these unfamiliar faces in a quite a while so most of us were nervous wrecks when handing out the blog flyers! After a while we were starting to get back into it so we were all ready to drive to the next art hop place until tragedy struck, and by this I mean Sam got a flat tire! What a fantastic way to end the evening I thought, except for I wasn't, BUT, we ended up making it a dandy old time. We came to the conclusion that it was meant to happen because downtown obviously wanted us to spend more time in it and take in our surroundings if we wanted to work on revitalizing it. At least we got some dance moves down from a couple of the muralistics and shared some really interesting stories that we otherwise would not have. We did have a total of an hour and a half to burn anyway, oh well, great day in the land of the muralistics I think..
