projects at Galeria Perdida in Chilchota, Michoacan, Mexico
Last wednesday evening I rode a huge metal bird back to Los Angeles from Guadalajara City, Jalisco, Mexico.
I wanted to recount in a serial & retrospective manner, the projects I undertook and took part in during my time in Chilchota. on Friday of my first week in that magical town, Andy Janacua organized a happening.
Andy's project involved coordinating the shutting-down of a street near galeria perdida. The purpose of the street closer was to enable and invite the street's residents to eat lunch together and share each other's company in an unusual and exciting way. Almost every household on the street was into the idea and prepared special food to share with their neighbors. Everyone had a great time eating, laughing and playing games in the street.
to be continued soooooooon! the story of Featherbeard # 2 will be recounted
