Secret Stash

On the first Friday of every month, the art galleries downtown are open & Hargett St. closes to cars and opens to local artists/vendors.  A friend of mine works on graphic design for Fish Market Student Gallery, and she asked if I'd like to help her paint the entrance wall Thursday night.  We were up til the wee hours of Friday morning painting a giant 'stache and watching Law & Order SVU via projector. 

As a final touch, we mounted a pad of sticky notes to the wall, directing viewers to share their secrets. It was a bit surprising how willing strangers are to do just that - by the end of the night, the walls were covered in yellow squares of secrets, ranging from laughably absurd to honest & personal.
