Hi, Rhonda - I found you by way of Violette's message board. I just wanted to say, I think your idea for the art vending machines is so cool, and I really admire you for "thinking outside the box" to put this show together, and for being so open about how things might have gone better. Don't beat yourself up about it though - I don't think I've been to an art show yet (& I've been to plenty and organized/curated some), where everything went as planned. Laughing about it helps me get through those times.
I wish I could see this show! The pictures look amazing. Unfortunately, Canada's a little too far from S. Calif. to make that practical : )
Peace & Prosperity to you!
