The Daily Tar Heel wrote an article about the show! http://www.dailytarheel.com/article/2013/01/mixed-concrete-art-show-helps-build-habitat-homes
Tomorrow is the big day! Our team has put in a ton of time and effort in to this show. With just a couple set-up details left, Mixed Concrete 2013 is about to kick off! Thanks to everyone who has supported and helped us along the way this year!
Mixed Concrete will be open tomorrow from 7-11p and Saturday from 11a-3p. Remember to come by and check out the inspirational UNC student artwork!
Classes restarted today after the holiday weekend, so we were forced to pause the Mixed Concrete set up to focus on school We’ll be back tomorrow to hang up the final pieces and some last minute submissions that were sent in just barely in time.
Publicity for the show has taken off! The Daily Tar Heel is writing an article about Mixed Concrete for Friday’s paper. Burgess and I were interviewed today, and actually ran into Kendra, the girl who covered the show last year! (This is her article http://www.dailytarheel.com/index.php/blog/canvas/2012/01/4f21c4ca09016)
Habitat’s Publicity Committee has been working overtime to put up flyers, deliver invitations, and send our press release to any nearby news organization. (Thank you Caitlin!)
This evening, Burgess and I were invited to participate in “Service Under Scrutiny,” a discussion panel featuring the most prominent volunteer organizations on campus. Answering the questions and reflecting on the mission of Habitat for Humanity was an important reminder of why we joined Habitat and the greater cause our hard work is going to.
I can’t believe the show is so soon! It’s going to be awesome!
TRU looks fantastic! If you are in the area, you should definitely swing by this week for a sandwich to check it out. Thank you Kaitlin, Nicole, Grey, Julia, & Jeremy for helping out today! We now have 49 pieces up on the walls. We nearing the end of set up, and Burgess and I are SO happy with how well everything is going!
