Friday, my mom & I went to the SOFA* (sculpture, objects, functional art) Show at Navy Pier, in Chicago. As always, it was fun (I see lots of friends and spend time with my mom) and it was exciting! There was so much wonderful work, my head is spinning with ideas!
All of the sculpture at the show, made me think about "Little Village" group. I have more thoughts on these.
