First Friday Art Trail

First Friday...on the Fourth of the Hub, talk about a coin toss-but the Trail must go on and what a trail it was! It was so cool...everyone on it was just in a great mood, tons of Red, White and Blue-lots of all American day in Downtown Lubbock.
Lots of new faces, old friends, people who became new friends and even reestablishing old connections and all due to the First Friday Art Trail. This 7/4/2008 event brought out the old guard of the art world...the giants. The people that kept Art in the Hub alive during those dark years and are now celebrated State wide and World wide as being among the best.
How fortunate we are to live in a city where on this, the most family, outdoor, go to the lake- day of the summer...people congregated on Downtown streets to re acquaint themselves, soak up the talent that lives here, and celebrate the sun beginning to shine on the right people.
Thanks from Tornado Gallery to everyone who came by and made this a happening Fourth of July!
