Last weekend we enjoyed our outing with the Chicken Footstools at the St. Louis Art Fair. We were surrounded by super-talented artists, old friends, new friends, cute chicken-riding kiddos and people who light up at the opportunity to share their chicken stories. Once again we were struck by the deep reaction from people of every shape, size, color, outfit, piercing or not. Francois Lalanne summed it up well when he said, "Everyone can recognize animals throughout the world. You don't have to explain what they are or mean."
The idea is simple, but the delight is significant. We hope our work brings awareness of the extraordinary in the ordinary.
Thank you SLAF and thanks to everyone who came out to the show! It was our pleasure to meet you.
