Margi's altar at Barnsdall Junior ArtCenter

This is the latest regarding Margi's altar at Barnsdall Junior ArtCenter:

Met with Luis and Gerda this evening; Margi's altar will be outdoors,a center table against the building with 2 other altars on either side; Luis will be there all day Thursday and Friday, painting the table, draping it with cloth, bringing items to add to it; anyone who would like to add something to the altar can come any time they wish on those days.

Luis suggested that, if possible, we pick a time: like 4-5pm on Friday to meet at the altar to add our own items, say a few words or just share our own memories of Margi; like another memorial of sorts. With our individual schedules and various locations, that may not be as easy as we wish, but we can keep it loose.

The altar should all be done by 5pm on Friday, and may be up for the weekend. Luis works at Barnsdall and will protect it if the weather suddenly changes. The general festivities at Barnsdall: music, food, exhibition, etc., will begin at 7:00pm, but workshops and classes begin around 4:00pm.

If everyone brings 1 or 2 items (and they can be anything you wish) that will be great. Invite anyone you know who loved Margi and her work to participate; this is a celebration.

Happy Halloween.
