Dan and I returned from Myrtle Beach last Sunday after wrapping up our final shoot for Wish You Were Here - our photo essay on Waikiki Village, a small family- owned motel in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The series will be exhibited at the Franklin G. Burroughs & Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum of Myrtle Beach from January 8 until February 26 , 2012. We have been raising funds on Kickstarter and need your help! We have until Thursday August 18 at 7:58PM (that's tomorrow!) to meet our Kickstarter goal!
Aspects of this project have been supported by the South Carolina Arts Commission. We have also applied for funding from the Humanities Council South Carolina, but support from artists, educators and arts professionals such as yourself is vital to Wish You Were Here!
Please take the time to check us out on Kickstarter and follow us on Posterous (http://farnell-powell.posterous.com/) - any donation is welcome and rewards are available!. I'll be glad to answer any questions.
Cythia and Dan

Artists and Poets for Lunch at the South County YMCA on alternate Fridays running from 9/23 through 12/2 .
I'm hoping to line up one poet and one artist to come in from 12:00-1:15 to share their work and talk a little bit about their process. We have a large senior population here around that time but also lots of empty nesters. I'm also approaching area restaurants to ask them to support the arts by donating one healthy buffet lunch. They can showcase their menu and advertise their business as well as support the Y and the arts.
With 6 time slots, I'm looking for 6 poets and 6 artists. I really believe that creativity is part of a healthy lifestyle and want to find ways to promote that concept through the YMCA.
You can reach me through FaceBook, or at my YMCA email: Lroeleveld@gpymca.org or my YMCA phone at 783-3900 ext 137. Thanks!
Dates for the Lunches:
October 7, October 21
November 4, November 18
