The Mirror Project was originally installed in the public spaces of the Comfort Inn Columbia Gorge Gateway in October, 2012. It’s been a great year (how many artists get the opportunity to glance up at the video array while at the day job and see someone standing engrossed in a hall in front of one of their pieces?), and response to the Project has been overwhelmingly on the continuum between positive and delighted.
Halloween evening will be celebrating the renewal of the Installation, and everyone is (yes you are) invited. There will be new Mirrors on the walls, a Treasure Hunt through the halls in search of the critters in the middles, plus Mindy’s great hot cider, the popcorn machine, caramel for the apples, nuts & bolts, and a general atmosphere of good cheer. No schmoozing required – if you want to just grab your Treasure Hunt cards and wander off in search of, with a cup of mulled cider in your hand, that’s the sort of gathering it is.
Everyone attending will be entered in the drawings for hotel stays, Mirror Project edition prints, and artist-designed Mirror Project earrings. The drawings are at 8:00p and you don’t need to be present to win, just to have appeared at some point in the evening.
If you’re taking the kids out trick-or-treating, stop by before or after – we’ll help fill their bags and have a Treasure Hunt game for them, too!
