Black Friday at Frankenart

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who writes here and to any readers we may have accumulated. Hope you all have a good meal somewhere tomorrow. As for the next day, if you're undecided on participating in Black Friday, try this instead: Leslie Henslee hosts a green alternative at Frankenart Mart, the tiny experimental art gallery in the Richmond with an interactive art lab.

On Friday, from 1pm to 8pm, Frankenart Mart is hosting a "make a children's book" kinda event. I say "kinda" because it's hard to define what goes on there. I've participated in the events here in the past, plan to participate in this one, and still can't find the words to describe it. The Frankenart manifesto states, in part, that it aims to be "an inclusive meeting ground for artists, audiences and community members that blurs the boundaries between them."
