The Fair Show

the showIt's done! A ton of prep and stress and permanently hunched shoulderblades but I think it all paid off nicely. Today was the Mid South Fair's board of directors meeting, and as this is the last year that the fair will be held at the Fairgrounds, the president of the Fair invited me to show my work.

The show was crazy fast, setting up right before the meeting and then taking it down immediately afterward. But I got to shake hands with former mayors and pretend like actually knew what I was doing. It was cool to listen in on board members reminiscing about fair rides and watching them sneak a look at one of the more scandalous entries:


Selfishly I'm really sad that the Fair will be moving as it is just steps from our house, but I am so thrilled that this town is small enough that the President of the Fair stumbled onto my work and granted me such an honor.

I will miss the fair not being here, although I have not been since the boys were young.
I love the red boots and diap picture. She is one cool kid...

Thank you! The actual show was just for that afternoon. There has been some talk about having it up later, but only for another luncheon. I don't think it's going to be available to the public (leaving it out untended = liability issues :(

But I'll get those suckers scanned and on flickr soon.
