What are the best things about art fairs
The people, the art, the attitudes.
Best show ever and why
The last one. I've been hired by the Castle Rock Arts Festival several times, and this year, I played with yellow caution tape for the first time with great success. Check my blog for details.
Worst show ever and why
In some ways, our Cherry Creek Arts Festival performance with two of our Giant Parade Puppets was very disappointing. Instructive, but disappointing. This was several years back.
