Strut!! Community Arts Celebration

May 2, 2015

 May 2, 2015 in Madison WI -

It was an amazing expereince to be part of the group that helped make this event happen in Madison WI.  Laura's wonderful energy and fabulous costumes were like a magnet in drawing together a wide range of creatie people at UW Madison and across the Madison Community.  A semester long project, this last celebration was only the public showing of months of collaborations and connections!


"if you just put a whole bunch of interesting creative people in a room together, fabulous things will happen"
