June 20, 2007



I was a little confused by the Lakefront Festival of the Arts. I had never attended before so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I was under the impression that it was an art sale. And it was! So I was a bit troubled by the fact that I had to pay $10 to get in. I had never been charged to go look at stuff that somebody is trying to sell me before. Like, the blue-shirts at Best Buy never charge me to go look at the TVs I might want to buy. So that was head-scratcher #1.

Head-scratcher #2 was that there was only one entrance/exit to the place and it was about as inconveniently located as possible. So here I am, with a wad of cash and an empty wall in my apartment, and it was like they were trying to do everything they could to prevent me from buying some crap to hang on my walls.

Maybe I'm just not "sophisticated" enough for the LFFOTA. I did get some killer falafel though.


This is a juried and invitation only art display and many of the pieces are worth more money than the average person can afford. The one entrance/exit was probably more for security reasons. The fee to get in I am presuming was to help the set up cost, security, and maybe to help the art museum in some way. It is definitely worth experiencing. The details in the art, and different styles and mediums was outstanding. I can't afford most of the artwork, but it was nice to be able to view it and talk to the artists.


Yeah Char, I'm sure you're right. Like I said, I'm a totally unsophisticated rube. I'm sure those people that use the right side of their brains would love the place. I was just a little confused by the whole process. I just wanted a painting or something.
