This past weekend was the 33rd annual Yuma Art Symposium in Arizona. The event featured lectures, workshops, and a Saturday night dance fiesta complete with hand made flour tortillas. YUM. The legendary File, Saw and Solder relay race also took place on Saturday. Teams of three, usually but not necessarily skilled in metal work, convert the making of a simple ring into an exciting sports event. The old idiom proves true with this crowd. WORK hard, PLAY hard.
BOB & KAT Very Spontaneous Exhibition
In keeping with the spirit of lightheartedness, Our Dear Bob Ebendorf and Kat Cole scavenged the streets of Yuma for material for a small installation on Madison Avenue behind the Blue Dumpster. A great success.
All of us that attended the Yuma symposium left creatively charged, with pockets full of charms and new contacts. If you have not been before, it is totally worth saving the date for next year. From all of us at ECU, we thank the Yuma Symposium Coordinating Board, Friends of Yuma, and Yuma Fine Arts Association for welcoming us into their homes. There are many more pictures and memories to share from Yuma, the experience was too grand to sum in one post. Thanks for reading. *Laritza G.
