peace and justice fair – one last note

13 Sep

I forgot to mention one other favorite moment this past Saturday. I got up from our booth and walked over by the Farmer’s Market, and I found one of our hearts hanging in this pretty bush full of red berries. This is a great example of what I’d love to see happen with this project – hearts randomly hung in public places where everyone can enjoy happening upon a little unexpected piece of art. A big thanks to whoever shared their heart with our city!

As I said before, we were very excited to talk to all of the lovely folks who came to the Peace and Justice Fair last Saturday.

So many delightful families and friends. My favorite part was one person who said, “Love is a radical act,” and I knew he got it.

Vancouver Farmer’s Market

This past weekend, during the Peace and Justice Fair, my friend Jan went over to the Farmer’s Market to hang her heart on the Captain Vancouver Statue because she knew it would look lovely with the bouquet of flowers that someone always puts in his hand.

A big thanks once again to Karen and the First Congregational Church UCC for inviting us to share our project at the Peace and Justice Fair. A lot of people came by and were excited to hear about Love is a Radical Act. Thanks to everyone’s generosity, I am off to the store to buy some much needed kiln shelves, glaze, and other supplies so I can glaze and fire the next batch of hearts.

Thanks to the generosity and support of the First Congregational Church UCC, we will be handing out 150 hearts today, September 8, at the Peace and Justice Fair in Vancouver, WA. Please stop by and see us if you can! We will be there starting at 9:30am until the hearts run out. The Peace and Justice Fair is a pretty big annual event, so it might not take too long to go through all those hearts. Hope to see you there!
