Diversity through the arts
The summer is flying by and in the midst of creating, wheeling and dealing I have neglected to let you know, (if there is anyone reading this stuff anyway), all this cool stuff that has been happening around me.
For one, I was invited to paint live as part of the entertainment package for the 4th of July celebration at the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana, Mexico.
At first I was hesitant, but I am glad that we ended up going… but I must tell you that I was a bit under dressed and I stuck out like a sore thumb.
The theme of the party was about diversity through the arts in order to promote unity in the community. The juxtaposition of having a bunch of politically connected people in their best suit with some guy spray painting in the background was refreshing.
The whole thing worked, at least on me, I felt accepted… and I got a cool mug.
p.s. There is something very special about crossing the busiest border in the world in a vehicle with consulate plates and permits… Baller status!
