Omar and Briana's weekend with Albus Cavus

I had invited one of our best artist at Perry School to come with me to the opening of LOVE STAINS at Cre8 Space Firday night.  He came with style, and sketch pad in hand and got to work right away. 
 He drew an amazing portrait of George Washington, entitled Number One Prez.   He then asked J Coleman, curator of the exhibit, if he could hang it in the show.  And then it sold!

 My sunday brightened up when I saw Briana walking down the street to come to the Albus Cavus poetry workshop at Perry School.  We had so much fun listening to and writing poems that included sounds, noises and even scilence. 
What a fun weekend!
