Art Outside 2009 Display

Here's my display from Art Outside 2009.  It put on by the Artseen Alliance in Texas farmland outside of Austin.  Evidently it used to take place in Austin, but they had to move because the city built a parking lot or something where it used to be.  OK, I made the parking lot thing up.  I have no idea why it had to move to the countryside.

I wasn't sure what to expect from the event, but there was a lot going on.  For the few hours I was there last night, there were multiple band playing the entire time, a carnival, a fashion show, a film screening, and many contraptions that spit fire.  In all, it was a pretty awesome event.

I was glad that I had to chance to set up my own display.  Since I didn't have frames for any of my paintings, I had the idea to paint frames around them.  I also threw water into the frames to match the drippy aesthetic of the paintings.  I think it came out well.  I took a couple of pictures with my cell phone.
