Today was a day spent mainly preparing for the next AWE Project (Artists Window Exhibit) in downtown Greenfield during the month of May.Â I am not sure why it all takes so long to do – but it sure does.Â Matching up artists with business owners, needing of course to work with people’s needs – what kind of art of place wants, what kind of conditions an artist needs … and of course, there is always the waiting for answers.Â Today Susan Elkin and I finalized the lists of stores and artists (and artists in stores) – 3 lists and we tweaked again the press release to send out to the artists to get feedback.Â Just getting the email list up-to-date for which artists are in this project took a long time – some new ones were given over the phone and others from emails.Â That kind of coordinating just plain takes time!!!Â But people do love the AWE once it is up … there is such great feedback!

So I started a couple of ACEOs today, but I couldn’t get very far – this AWE detail work took over the day.Â Tonight is the Conservation Commission to witness protecting the wet lands.Â At last the state insisted that the owners protect this wetland that for 2 1/2 years they have tried to pave over.Â Then the process will go on to the Zoning Commission.Â If developers had just agreed to a reasonable size store, a smaller footprint, or fewer parking spaces, the discount store would already be built.Â So the beat rolls on …
Thanks for stopping by and I would love to hear about you!
