Been to the Dane Hansen Museum in Logan, Kansas, probably four times. Passed by this interesting bit of history all 4, but this time, noticed it. I have been nearby for several plantings of time capsules - especially working in schools. Makes me think of the capsule my daughter and I created back in the late 70's by adding items, photos, names to a jar and placing it in the wall of the unfinished basement we were beginning to finish. I wonder if it's still there? I wonder if anyone remodeled and found it?
I won't be around for the opening of this one. You neither, huh? Just thinking of how fast our world changes as we bound forward into the future it will, for sure, be a treat for someone.
A 4 day workshop with Kaye Franklin was just perfect - got a lot of painting done and watched some incredible demos! I seem to take one from Kaye, each year for the last 3 (that doesn't count going to Guatemala with her). The other big 'plus' to workshops - whatever genre the workshop pertains to, you come away with more wondering and knowing than when you went into it. I come away with some new thinking each time. Touching base with old friends and meeting new ones is also a plus, especially for where I am living.
Stacy, who lives in Logan has spent the last several months, cleaning out, fixing/refurbishing the upstairs over the City Offices to make a gallery/studio. We visited it, it's almost ready for her to begin really enjoying the hard work she has put into it.
I love the high ceilings, and the new track lighting. She also has new heat, AC and fresh plumbing. The other nice thing was seeing her storage closet. I want one like that...but I will take what I see and maybe we can tweak mine - please.
