What is it about sharing the table for a meal with friends that makes the friendships burn brighter? I have been working on a book cover illustration the last couple weeks that deals with that phenomena. I love it, I love the around the table intimacy that happens when we mix conversation with shared dishes, shared thoughts, and shared physical space.
Every Sunday night up to the first week of Art Prize we have a potluck dinner at our house (106 Fuller SE) beginning at 5:30. We eat and share the vision of the Beerhorst Wonder Wagon event which is all about creating community through creativity. We are really excited about Art Prize and what it is doing to rewrite the DNA of Grand Rapids. We are looking forward to the art, the music, and the friends that will come together at our encampment on the river between Kinkos and the River for those two weeks. If you are reading this and think you would like to join our Wonder Wagon team please consider this your invitation and bring a dish to pass!
