Lexington, KY is currently hosting the World Equestrian Games, and today was college day. It was free for college students, so Elliot, Whitney, my friend Dave, and I hopped on a bus downtown Lexington, rode out to the horse park, and walked around all day. It was such a blast! We even got to pet a penguin!
This was taken in the Alltech tent, where they had a model of sustainable farm that they are working on.
There are more pictures to come for sure, but it will probably take a bit because this is the week when everything is due for every class pretty much. Let the stress begin.
Last night was my first ever show. I had been accepted into a juried show, the Kentucky Showcase, and the reception was last night during Gallery Hop. Gallery Hop is a pretty cool thing. I can’t remember exactly how often it is, but a couple of times a year, on Friday night, all of the galleries in town open their doors and put out food and drink. People can just walk around downtown from gallery to gallery seeing all sorts of art (from beautiful and serene, to strange and creepy).
Lexington is hosting the World Equestrian Games in a week or so, and in honor of that they had a bunch of artists and schools and such decorate these fiber glass horses. They are all over the place in Lexington. Some are awesome, and some are just weird. I would like to go walk around and try to see them all sometime, although that may take a while.
