I’m flying back to the states and should be home sweet home by the time you read this. We spent the last week in Landau in der Pfalz, Germany with our daughter and friends I met during my own college exchange program over 30 years ago. They took a short vacation this week, and we were dog- and house-sitters.
Local environmental and artistic organizations will collaborate on a project highlighting the importance of pollinators in the environment when the Sun Valley Center for the Arts unveils its next BIG IDEA project, “Bees,” this coming Friday in Ketchum, ID. Thousands of paper bees have been cut from the handmade sheets with embedded seeds and adorn the walls of The Center’s gallery. The remaining bees will be placed on The Center lot in Ketchum this summer, alongside other plant starts and seeds, to emerge into a pollinator pasture.

The SLOW READ is a literary/art project honoring the 100-year anniversary of the publication of Willa Cather’s novel, “My Ántonia”. Artist Barb Tetenbaum has been exploring the pages of this novel for several years now, and she needs our help (here’s a link to her Kickstarter campaign
+ a video about the project) for the next iteration. High quality images from the book’s first edition will be projected at public sites in Nebraska, Oregon and beyond. The entire novel will be revealed page-by-page starting in late May and ending in August. Three or more page spreads will be available daily for both unsuspecting passersby to stumble upon and Cather devotees to return to and punctuate each day of their summer.
