The Wrapped Bin in Ogle County

This afternoon was the official unveiling of the Wrapped Bin done by
artists Cathy Bouzide and Danny Mansmith. The bin has been wrapped
with countless strips cut from bedsheets either donated or purchased
from thrift shops and other bits of fabric given for this project.
Farm owner Mike Pfeiffer donated a pair or worn work pants as a final
touch. I did a small watercolor of the bin while I was there, the
first art of the art!
Tonite was a potluck dinner at Mix Park in for all the artists, hosts,
and committee members. The food was delicious as usual and after
dinner each artist gets up to talk about their week and many funny and
touching stories ate shared. We all become very close in a short time.
Tomorrow is the Art Festival and Sale also at Mix Park in Oregon. And
then it will be time for us all to leave this unique place and head
for home.
