TOYS (holiday party #7)
Primary Colours, a nonprofit agency promoting the arts, annual holiday show featured works by local artists around the theme of toys. They asked everyone to bring pasta for Second Helpings. We can use 125 pounds of pasta every day. Pasta does not tend to be among the food that we rescue. It does not have an expiration date, so it does not get rotated off the shelves as often. It is a great item for schools, churches and community groups to collect for us.
The show was great and we collected a lot of pasta. And, I purchased a great piece of art by Kipp Normand. It is a doll made of found objects with a windup key on her back. It reminds me of me - lots of different parts and interests. Wind me up and go. I'm thrilled to own it.
