      Had a great time exploring the fair with you this year. Was very impressed by the female artists of tART and the way they support one another on projects. So empowering!

      Haha! I know. Those shovels were pretty scary too 🙂 You would have LOVED the Fountain fair!

    Thanks, Leslie, for checking out the work and putting it out on your blog. Sorry I didn’t get to meet you & fill you in on all the Lumplander info and updates—you might have really been fearful!!

      Loved the Lumplander series! I can only imagine what additional details you could provide on their backstory (e.g., social unrest, environmental disasters etc). Let us know when you have another exhibit in NYC 🙂

    You made me glad to be on the downward slope of a middle-aged adult. Thanks for this. I think now more than ever, it is time for children to escape these traps by going outdoors.

    Impressive art! That mannequin at the end is freaky. Very realistic looking.

    Woops! Guns, Guns and More Guns. And Shovels …that really is scary. Art is but a reflection of society so the point is will it be as scary as it is now or could it be a better world for children to come?
