30 years-party

By spotogspindel | February 25, 2012

What is big, blue, with turquoise dots and lime circles?

What has lots of colorful paper in blue hues?

Read n, you´ll find the answer in the end 😉

Bømlo Art Group is celebrating it´s 30 year old. We´re celebrating all year, but especially tonight. 🙂 The opening of Minna Lappalainen´s exhibition, with a concert afterwards. Usually it´s the birthday-child that gets the gifts, but we´ve turned it around. Since we stage our exhibitions in Bømlo Cultur house, we thought we´d give them a gift from the Art Group. Something they (and we) need! Something big (and difficult to wrap:

A pallet-jack (or pallet-truck)! (Thanks, Sid, for telling me the right name 🙂

So my creative project for the day, was to simply decorate this big thing, in the Art Group´s favorite shade of turquoise. I know it looks a bit silly with turquoise measles, but it´s supposed to be a fun thing, and at least no one can take it and claim that it´s theirs, it is clearly the Culture house´s! Since I couldn´t wrap it, it´s been decorated temporarily with paper-ribbons ion a big bow 🙂

    You could have a whole new career as a forklift decorator. Maybe you could move into heavy equipment such as bulldozers. What would the world be like if they weren’t all,
    all yellow.

    Bulldozers sound really fun to paint! I might have to think seriously about that! 😉
