I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

I Made a Mistake
Lead Artist: John Del Gaudio
Text: Not Sightly / IIIIIIIIII.

“Slightly painful and really more satisfactory stinted…In a particular relief…In the rest of piles of candles…It’s not very active.” Mob mentality that actually makes you find the right angle so that you can hear the text in the correct way that makes you think of cows. The installation rises. The performance sets. 

The performance will coincide with a special 3-day installation where the visitor can read Stein’s The Making of Americans to TMT Artistic Producer John Del Gaudio.

Friday, June 19 – Monday, June 22 at 7:30pm

Saturday, June 20 – Monday, June 22 from 10:00am – 6:00pm
