We're two weeks away from our start date, and we've got most of the show details sorted out too: We'll do a three-day show this year, opening February 6, in the same location as last year (the Mr Roboto Project, on Penn Ave. They're good to us!). 

Here are the key dates for everybody:
2/6/15: Fun-a-Day Art Show Opening Party! 7pm-10pm!
2/7/14: Gallery hours, TBD
2/8/14: Gallery hours, TBD


And here are the key dates specifically for this year's participants:

2/4/15, 6pm-9pm: Project Dropoff

Keep those fires burnin' and tell all your pals!

It's time!!!! Fun-a-Day 2015 approaches!

Oh my!


Guys, it's time to start thinking about your projects for January, already! As a reminder, Fun-a-Day is a month-long project (January 1-31), during which participants do something fun every day, and document it to show in a group art show at the end of the project.


Go here and sign yourself up! Do it! I can't wait to see what you are all thinking of!


It is one of my favorite times of the year, and I am delighted to organize it again this year and to see all the amazing art you bonkers folks put together. I don't know if I'm a little extra mushy due to impending holiday-ness, but it is such a joy for me to get these little updates from you guys through the month and to share them with everybody else and encourage you all along the way. I am excited to do it again!


But of course (as always!) I don't do it alone! Tons of folks help out every year, in all sorts of ways, and if you're interested in lending a hand, shoot an email over to funadaypgh@gmail.com!

Photos from the 2014 Fun-a-Day Opening!

Goodness gracious, you guys.

The show is beautiful, and the work is amazing, and SO MANY PEOPLE came out Friday night to see it.

Erin took some photos and posted them straight to the fun-a-day facebook page, here. They're set so that anybody can see them, facebook user or not.

I took some photos too, and they're on Flickr, also set so that anybody can see them. If you'd like to download any of the photos, that's okay by me.
There are still lots of chances to see the show. You can swing by any time there's a show at Roboto (check the calendar on the Roboto Facebook page).

And don't forget that we're having a closing party on March 28, at 7pm. There'll be some performances by folks who didn't show work in the exhibition, so don't miss it!

Fun-a-Day 2014 Opening and Closing Events

Hi everybody! It's almost time!

As a reminder, the gallery opening is Friday, March 7, 2014, at the Mr. Roboto Project. Here's a facebook event for the opening! The whole space (front gallery and back performance space) will have works installed!

I'll de-install the works from the back performance space the next day, but the front gallery will be up and installed for the whole month, so come on by any time the Mr. Roboto Project is open!

Then, on Friday, March 28, 2014, we'll have a closing party. There'll be some songs from a song-a-day project and some readings from a writing project, among other surprises. Here's a facebook event for the closing!

I hope to see you at both events! It's going to be amazing!

The 2014 Fun-a-Day art show is almost here!

My goodness! January felt both extremely long and extremely short, all at once!

I've heard from lots of folks who've completed their projects, and there is going to be a lot of pretty remarkable stuff to see at this year's show.

As a reminder, it opens on Friday, March 7, 2014 at the Mr. Roboto Project, on Penn Ave.

Come on down, and bring some pals!
