My sculpture supplies are packed in the car, and I am just about to head over to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. The museum is hosting a Da Vinci After Dark party as part of their exhibit Leonardo da Vinci: Man, Inventor, Genius. There will be 2 bands, wine tastings, a cash bar, a couple of inventors and me working on a sculpture basted on some of Da Vinci's drawings.
This will be my first time to see the new building sense its completion earlier this year. I have heard lots of good things about it.

I just set up a Flickr blog link that "should" connect my Flickr, Blogspot and Facebook accounts. To test the connection I have selected a photo from a work in progress: Walking Man from the Rodin in Vermont Project.
This project began while I was at the Vermont Studio Center. I am using 48 pages from an old book on Rodin's sculptures as the building blocks to create new abstract shapes.

Tags are important, but there is still a mystery as to keeping the words in the tag separate: Dallas Museum of Art as opposed to dallasmuseumofart, which seems to be the Flickr tag default.
There was also some discussion about connecting and building a community on Flickr. Nicole from the DMA Flickr group and Stephen from Art and Seek talked about using Flickr as an extension of various cultural institutes.
Well, I did take notes so I could go on and on, but it seems that the best way to learn about Flickr is to use it, and to go to meet ups like the one at the DMA, or you might try DFW Area Meetup. Also the Dallas Camera Club.org.
If the results of this event are positive, we might have another meet up next month. Let me know what you think... and, if you have a Flickr site send me a link.
