We finally did it! Dwight and I finally sat down and culled together all of our memories from Spectrum Live. Twas a huge undertaking, too. Especially considering our brains were still blown by (not only) the incredible amount of art we saw, but also, at how positive the whole experience was.
SFAL was a lot like a 'fantastic art nuclear bomb' going off in the middle of Kansas City (I'm not kidding). And yet there wasn't an ego in the house, folks — art was the star of the show. Everyone in attendance was there to have fun, buy and sell some amazing art, connect with other amazing artists, and just soak up the vibe.
I called the whole weekend magical once before and I'll do it again here. Hope you enjoy the recap.
(And 2013, you better watch your ass 'cause we're coming back!)
**Once more, we gotta thank Arnie and Cathy for bringing us aboard for this first year event. We had a ball. They were both guests on SiDEBAR back in October of 2008 and it was pleasure to finally meet them in person. Also, thanks to the Spectrum Live staff and all the volunteers. They rocked! And as it pertains to this episode, many thanks to the talented folks who kindly jumped on the mic with us: Tyler Davis, Bregelle Whitworth-Davis, Scott Quick, Travis Lewis, Jason Felix, Kristina Carroll, Kirk DouPonce, and Ron and Vanessa Lemen.
