Art Sharks!

The Shedd Aquarium held their 2nd annual Art Sharks event last weekend. The premise is that each artist donates a piece to the museum and during the Art Sharks event proper, all the art is displayed on movable partitions in the aquarium (I was there with Buddha, appropriately placed next to the Asian Bog). An hour-long reception let the artists and attendees mingle while the attendees look at the art. After a dinner (for the attendees, the artists had left by that point), random numbers were called and the guest with that number got to run (literally, run) to the piece of art they liked most and take it off the wall to come home with them. So, if your piece was popular, it would go fast....What a cool idea.

No pictures, but we did have a great time!
