Magic City Art Connection 2011

Last weekend, after two days of doing relief work for tornado recovery, I was wiped out. I needed a break from the heaviness of the last few days. Jonathan suggested that we take the girls downtown to Linn Park to see the Magic City Art Connection art show. Jonathan’s sister, Cecily, who is an artist, had a booth. We decided it was a perfect idea! We loaded up the littles and headed down to Linn Park.
The MCAC is a fantastic art show. The had hundreds of booth with ALL KINDS of artwork. They had paintings and glassware and wood carvings and photography and jewelry – so many really cool styles of art.
They had art projects submitted by high school art departments…

Is anything more southern than the Piggly Wiggly logo? I thought these were hysterical!

Isn’t this such a cool way to display jewelry? This booth had three of these funky mannequins, and they all had fabulous jewelry hanging from them!

There were so many pieces with brilliant color. Loved this glass piece!

And of course, they had musicians doing their thing for entertainment.

Of course, my girls were so happy to run into their aunt Cecily. Cecily said she’d had a great weekend and sold lots of paintings! She wrote about her experience on her blog.
Her booth looked fantastic when we saw it late on Saturday afternoon, so I’m sure it REALLY looked good before she sold so much!

She sold this one about five minutes after I took this picture. A sweet college girl bought it for her bother who was graduating from college and going on to medical school. Nice gift from little sister!

We had a great time at the MCAC. Wish we’d gotten there early enough to see every booth.


  1. LOVE that glass piece. And of course, Cecily pieces are always creative and amazing!
