Yodi brought posters for city events which we can participate in: The Summer in City music Series, 7th St. Festival, Blues and Brews. Lots going on this summer.

Yodi has made plans for Chen artists to show work in two vacant storefronts: The former Xertek Gym(more Soho style non traditional work), and Holiday Inn Floral Shop(traditional work), both on Hamilton. Phase 1 starts June 5th, phase 2 following week, and then a rotating schedule of artists. Please contact us if you would like to participate. This is a great opportunity.

Sarah, did I forget anything? Gianni accidentally tore off part of my notes while he was using my notepad. But he was an exceptionally good boy last night, so I can't be mad at him!

Sarah said...

Nope. Great job. I think you got it all.

June is going to be a busy month!
