schmoozing and falling

art opening was okay, but the art history drinks and schmoozing with the curator at the kimbell was the best. we did the twist, she called me her protege, and gave me her card. i love love love curators, art, art history, business cards, and cher. it was all in all an absolutely fantastic night.
i also started my job cataloging the entire permanent collection at the galesburg civic art center, so i'll let you know how that one goes.

skipped working at the farns-house to go to the curator's talk about her museum and some of her favorite acquisitions (her babies!). also went to coney island with the art history dept. for hot dogs. i'm pretty sure we're all applying for grants to go to the caa (college art association) convention to get our schmooze on. plus it's in chicity, so why not?
had a killer dance party with 'lonesome cowboys' playing on my tv in the background. hit the bars and hit the pavement. didn't clean my boo boo out quick enough and i now have an infected knee. woe is me!

here have some knee pix

is it lunch yet?

currently listening to: the flying club cup [beirut]
currently reading: popism: the andy warhol 60's [andy warhol, pat hackett]

so i had a dream that i made out with "hot sam" (lexie...) and then we went to see beirut in concert and i pointed at zac condon and he pointed back at me. and now i can't stop listening to beirut.

i keep telling all the skinny boys in my life to be andy warhol for halloween, but non of them listen to me.

p.s. follow me on tumblr --> http://sandycaribou.tumblr.com/

i've been reading POPism: The Warhol 60's and i think i love andy warhol even more and more. i'm in 1965 and Edie has just entered the picture. i can't wait to get to '67 and read all about Viva and Lonesome Cowboys. i really love and care about my senior research, which is all that i can really ask for.

making things is making zines this afternoon.

and then i get auctioned off at win-a-date!

i'm really into my new haircut

busy as a bee

currently reading: popism: the andy warhol 60's [andy warhol, pat hackett]

this term has been outrageously busy thus far. between kappa, making things, hillel, and three and a half classes, i'm feeling spread pretty thin. i have been finding time to cook though, which is probably my favorite part of the day. i've also been going to the galesburg farmer's market and cooking with the goodies i find each saturday. yesterday i made an apple crisp with a delicious crumble on top, it was a hit. and i've finally figured out how to cook eggplant!

yesterday was simply wonderful. woke up, went for a jog, did laundry, went to the farmer's market, had donuts and tea at ben&evan's, went to dick blick's sale, critical mass bikeride to the new bookstore, baked apple crisp, dinner at evan&ben's, martini's with kappas, adam's birthday party, dance party upstairs in my building, bed. phew. what a day!

i'm taking painting, film, 20th cent. eur. art, and senior thesis, all of which are going fairly well. painting is my favorite, closely followed by my research (sexuality in the themes of the west in art). i'm currently reading a fabulous autobiography by warhol, and i can't help but wish i was friends with him a bit. maybe in another life?

in other news, i started docent training at the farnsworth house in plano, il!! i'm so stoked. it was raining all around the house which was absolutely brilliant. i was completely dry but entirely surrounded by rain. i'm really looking forward to this work. seriously.

i've also submitted a bunch of photographs to the catch literary magazine. I'm thinking of having some enlarged, but we'll see.

molly soda dancing at pitchfork
boys dancing at anamanguchi show in chicago
adam grocery shopping in iceland
mari in the hotel in seattle
the graffiti park our first day in iceland
publicly commissioned art in reykjavik
the bird pond in reyjavik. this was taken at 9 or 10 at night. i'm in love with summer light.

it's getting colder now. the leaves have turned and are falling. i'm feeling good about things. the high holidays were lovely. clay came to town for them. and he's coming to visit in two weeks! things are going really well for us, and i'm just really happy right now. happy fall C:!
