Take a chance on the MIA.


I was going to say take a chance on me. But both corny versions fit my coverage of the Minneapolis Institute of Art's Art Perchancehttp://www.artsmia.org/art-perchance-2011/ event. Here is the MIA in all its Neon glory.








My friend and fellow CBIG and SCBWI member Shawn Mccann http://studiomccann.blogspot.com/ donated this cool cactus (or cacti) piece. Shawn was elusive to my paparazzi tendencies. So I didn't get his photo. But it was fun seeing him there!










I had to get a photo of this little sprite. Amy http://spritecreations.com/ did a great job of promoting her jewelry. Me...not so much.












But here I am standing by my framed print of Blue Staircase. I'm already wearing some swag. A glow necklace. More on that later.








The gallery.
















Let the games begin.


















I never did win at this one. But my husband got a ringer every time. Annoying!





















Here he is. And there's a new sheriff in town. (swag)





















This was a really fun game based on a Salvador Dali piece. (I think) You had to fish the lobster from its perch on a telephone to rest right side up on a dinner plate. I visited the Salvador Dali museum in St. Petersburg Florida several years ago. The surreal paintings are like the weirdest and most supernatural dream you'll ever have.
























There was some trailer trash band playing. O.K. they were named Trailer Trash. Hee, Hee.





















Here's my loot, swag, winnings...junk. To tell the truth my husband won most of it. I have a funny story about the fuzzy rainbow wrist band. My husband had to make a trip back to the car. And on his way he saw a squirrel running with one of the bands in his mouth. Someone is going to have a colorful nest this Winter! Oh, and I was a VIP...

I wonder if Amy's hair is naturally red, and whether her wings come off. Love the pictures, Sharon! This is a fun event, and I'd LOVE to see where that wrist band ended up... :-)

Nice photos, Sharon.

Your vampirism would enable you to fit right in with the goth artists and hipsters here, Sharon!

Dean looked very happy with his sheriff badge. Better watch out!

That looks like a really fun event. I like the idea of squirrels building a nest of fuzzy rainbow wrist bands!

Looks like fun. Our human was imagining the squirrel scurrying away with the prized multi-coloured wristband loot! LOL!
