This weekend the City Girl Farm chickens road tripped to the Arts in the Square in Frisco, Texas. We are learning that delight can be expressed in so many ways; some people laugh with gusto, some stand at a safe distance and watch, some simply smile, some kids go straight in for a hug, some pat each chicken and practice their counting, one girl makes chicken noises for five minutes straight, luckily no kids cry, and the large majority climb on for a ride. God's creation is so beautifully quirky and we seem to have captured instances of it in our chicken footstools. When people sit and put their feet up on a chicken they realize art can be fun, functional AND comfortable. What a joy to see people interact with our work - those who are young and those who are young at heart.
We enjoyed meeting other artists and art lovers, seeing old friends and soaking up the sunshine once it decided to break through. Thank you to AITS for all of your hard work and for awarding our chickens first place in 3D Mixed Media!
Come see the chickens at Art City Austin on April 2&3.
