Last weekend we were able to celebrate the end of our project by hosting an exhibit and party in our hometown of Charlottesville, VA. Our friends over at The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative opened up their gallery and created the place to be on First Fridays. It was a real joy to finally see our photos in print and have our closest friends and family there. Brother Sean made an incredible mix of Cajun and Zydeco music, while we made an open call for people to bring food and turn the evening into a potluck. What a turnout we had! From 6:30-10:30 the place was packed! Many people told us later they couldn’t even see the photographs because of the dense crowd.
The AFP attended festivals and events and parties for over a year, and there was no better way to end the project by having our own “festival” in Charlottesville. Thanks to our many friends who helped set up the exhibit the week before: Sean, Julie, Buster, Johnny, Maria, Mandy, Kevin, and Ashley. Ya’ll are the best.
