After looking at the activities going on in the area, we decided on the Fete De Glace Ice Festival in the historic Fifth Street area of St. Charles. Unfortunately, hundreds of people had the same idea we did. The area was packed, and it was hard to see any of the ice carvers at work.
We left the ice festival and walked to the Foundry Art Center. At the door we learned there was a chili and beer festival going on. That did not interest us at all, but we walked through the galleries and I enjoyed seeing the art. One of the areas was called a Graffiti Room. The walls were wrapped with cardboard, and a table in the middle held a large container of markers. Although the cardboard was almost completely covered, there was just enough room for me to add some graffiti of my own.

That would look really cool on the wall over your bed!ReplyDelete
I'll have to remember that the next time I redecorate.Delete
I learnt graffiti at University. I kept getting thrown out for practicing on the walls.ReplyDelete
That's a shame. I have no doubt you would have become a master graffiti artist.Delete
Good for you!ReplyDelete
That is fun. I can't do crowds these days. Maybe in the summer. We have a similar festival in Ottawa. I haven't been in years.ReplyDelete
I was telling Tony I was much more comfortable after we left the extremely crowded area.Delete
I've always wanted to leave some graffiti somewhere. That would be so much fun~ReplyDelete
Maybe one of your trapping locations will let you add something small on the side of a building?Delete
Your graffiti looks like a nice addition to the cardboard! I'm for graffity as it is a way for people to openly express themselves.ReplyDelete
Thanks. I'm not a fan of graffiti on buildings and public places, but something like this was a nice alternative.Delete
I'm a fan of graffiti, as long as it's in the right place.ReplyDelete
