Big Love, Big Thanks: Broadway East Art Walk at the Midtown Experiment
I was so busy helping organize the Broadway East Art Walk at the Midtown Experiment—a weekend of art & community—I forgot all about posting about it here on my blog. That’s okay though, we had an amazing turnout over the weekend and my hope is everyone walked away feeling creatively charged and inspired. I know I did.
Huge love and thanks to everyone who participated in our weekend of art and community. We couldn’t have done this without the talents of:
