What a great day in a quite busy place: the University of Maine's Student Union. This March Art-A-Thon was organized by Umaine students, Dan White, Caroline Robe and others through their Peace Action Maine chapter. There was a sumptuous spread of nosh-able goodies and a bottomless bowl of hummus, which by the end of the day was near finished. We had a fairly steady stream of students drop in for some between class art-making...many who were quite curious about our silk-screen rig and methodology. Nora Tryon kept things moving along so well we were able to design and cut a two-color stencil in one day! In addition to students we met faculty advisors, Ilze Petersons from the Peace and Justice Center of Eastern Maine and even some interested individuals from the town of Orono proper. They even had a mini concert with two students on acoustic guitars hammering out some originals and favorites. Congrats to the UMaine gang!
