Walking In Love on Two Tracks

The Walking In Love Installation now has a Board of Directors. We are operating as a non profit under the wings of Leading From Within. The Board made an important decision on friday April 15th. We have been using Kickstarter and a budget that has left some who know me well gasping. Those lovely gasping people spoke up and the Board had a great conversation clarifying what this Installation is about.

Walking In Love Installation Mission Statement

The Walking In Love Installation Organization is dedicated to the collaborative creation and exhibition of art that introduces artists and the public to a creative and joyful process infused with love.

I would also add my own words to that good statement: the process is transformational in a very good way. 

We also spoke about the excellent opportunity to deliver this gorgeous show to Herdon, Virginia, outside Washington DC. The decision was made to see this show go there. A commitment.  And a very bare bones budget. The Kickstarter budget is our highest hope for a professional Museum Quality one of a kind traveling art installation. We still support this vision. Dream big. And start where you are at. We think we can deliver this show to Sacred Threads for just under $10,000. Still a goodly number. But pared to the bone. Thank you to those who are contributing already. You help make this real.

We are on our way there. Artists continue to tell me they are making a panel almost every day. If you are one of them please send me a sign up sheet! The excitement for this installation is still alive even though we had to take it down from the Highland Art Center. That was a sad day. The happy news is that the show will be given a test run in its first incarnation of the traveling version.

I am so very pleased to announce that this test run will happen in my incredibly wonderful, supportive, generous and loving adopted home town of Hyampom, California. May 21 and 22nd only.

A few weeks in advance of this at a date to be announced shortly we will have a local fundraising event with live music, a live auction of interesting creative items and Games. Petanque, Bacci ball, Croquet and perhaps some softball. Thank you to those who have already stepped up to help organize and publicize this event and those who have offered river trips and hand made textile art and to the musicians who will play. I am grateful for your enthusiastic generosity of skills, time, materials and love. We are happily open to any who wish to join us.

So we are running on two tracks now. The think globally and act locally are those two tracks. It feels great to know this wonder, The Walking In Love Installation, will be experienced by many more people. THANK YOU!
