Melissa's show coincided with National Get Outdoors Day and there were all sorts of events planned. Melissa had a kids' art project featuring collaged birds. You can check out her website here.

Just outside was Bonnie Zimmer making art installations out of natural, recyclable, and found objects. I met Bonnie a few months ago at her show at IUN and quite liked her work, so when Melissa said she'd be there today, it was sort of a bonus. She had all sorts of materials available for the kids to use to create installations.
