I've been to Barcelona three times and I'm ready to return!

CARDBOARD AND CREATIVITY…

In which I stumble upon an inspirational exhibit.IMG_2876

Forgive the blurred image.  The picture was taken through glass.  I had found the art store, Vicenc Piera, in the Eixample neighborhood, then rested in a lovely little park.  As I left the park, I took a shortcut past Palau Robert and saw the display advertising an exhibit then in residence.  Wow!  A wonderful collection of images and constructions that coaxed me into the exhibit, a retrospective for the Catalan children’s book author and artist, Roser Capdevila.

What became immediately apparent is that this woman was a genius with cardboard.  I imagined that no piece of the corrugated  stuff was safe from her, and I love cardboard!  So, won over immediately, I noticed the many ways she employed it.

Cardboard folders (even for her bills!).

And best of all, cardboard theaters!  I was inspired.  So much so that when I got home, my granddaughter, R., and I put together our own theater.

Thank you, Roser.  More cardboard wonders to come!

I travel, I teach, I walk, I write, I draw. I spent big chunks of my life acquiring degrees, but I've learned as much from my students as I learned from my professors. I am always ambitious to learn more.
