We had a great time last weekend at the Saint Paul Art Crawl.  Set up in the magnificent Waiting Room of the Union Depot, a cadre of volunteers passed out stickers and talked up the festival projects.  Highlights include many valiant efforts to fling LED-filled rubber balls using The Hack Factory’s Mini Trebuchet (a much larger catapult will be part of the festival offerings on the grounds of the Depot on June 8), hanging out with our friends at the Bedlam Theater, meeting festival artist Jeff Nelson who’ll create a parking lot full of amazing chalk drawings outside of Lowertown Bike Shop, and of course, the first real sunshine of spring.

Next up: May Day! Come find us in Powderhorn Park on Sunday, May 5th.
