People call it: FUN-A-DAY.   It is to help get you through winter.   The idea is: Pick a project, do it every day in February, show it or some part of it at a group show March 3! Starting Feb. 1st!!  Things we have done before/dream of doing:  draw a cartoon every day, knit part of a scarf every day, paint a poster every day, practice your hawaiian guitar every day, write part of a song, transcribe part of a hot fiddle solo every day, make a sock puppet every other day, make a 10 second recording every day, research your neighborhood every day…its wide open!! Pick something that can be done in daily increments Feb 1st to 28th.  See what happens!!! FUN!! The show March 3 will be unjuried, open to all ages, can include performances/displays/demonstrations.   Friday, March 3 show at St. Peter’s Church-1950 Trumbull, Detroit  Basic schedule:   set-up 6:30pm Doors/refreshments 7:30pm performances/music 8-10pm If you want a performance slot or have questions email:  [email protected] IN FUN WE TRUST, -Lindsay and Jason etc.
