Bill at Art Prize 2013    This is a pic. of me at Art Prize yesterday (Sat.).  Larry Figurski took the pic.   I did 5 consecutive hours of meet and greet, then took a couple of hours to walk around and look at the art with daughter #2.   We gave out over 1,000 Bill Steffen moustaches, and I signed hundreds of autographs.  Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by.  I’ll be there again today in front of the Art Museum Studio from 2-4 PM.   We’ll give out moustaches until they are gone.   Great weather ahead…dry and pleasant through the midweek.

Heavy rain Saturday:  4.65″ Baton Rouge LA, 4.37″ Jackson MS, 3.05″ Huntsville AL, 2.79″ Buffalo NY, 2.39″ Houston TX, 2.29″ Knoxville TN, 1.99″ Cincinnati, 1.98″ Erie PA, 1.72″ Atlanta.  The afternoon high temp. at Houghton MI was only 49.  There was a small EF1 tornado Friday in Pineville MS that damaged a couple of chicken houses.  Severe weather Saturday was limited to one storm that produced 14 wind damage reports from NC into VA.

    I must say, when Artprize started I was a bit skeptical, but man have I done a 180. After going the past couple years, we can’t wait each September now till it starts. There is a lot of “head scratching” art, but there is also the things that just flat out WOW you. I think last year we made it downtown 5 or 6 times. Couldn’t get enough of it. That night with the sky lanterns has to be one of the most incredible sights I’ve ever seen. The whole event is just amazing in the scale of it all. Looking forward to next week to head back again!

    5 hours of meet and greet? WOW! Good thing you enjoy it. I would have been looking for a building to jump off of!

    Bill – it was so good to see you today!!! I wish we could post pictures – my 12-yr-old niece wore her “stache” and WOOD-TV sunglasses the rest of the day – even while we ran some errands in Wayland…..LOL!!!!

    Art Prize is just the best thing that ever happened to downtown!!
