Public Space film night was fantastic!

The weather held and it was a perfect night for the Arts in the Heart (of Mt. Pleasant) night of short films. We had over a 100 folks show up and enjoy an evening of free movies about public space. The space behind Our Town Cafe was perfectly suited to a film event, and it didn’t take much to transform that space from a parking lot into an intimate outdoor arts venue. Check out the before & after pics:

Thanks to everyone who came out and all the helping hands that made this night work so well. A big thank you again to Our Town Cafe for allowing us the use of their property, and thanks also to the Cray for setting up an alley-side food table for the movie-goers, and to Conrad for all the gear.
