We love the festival because we are artsy gals. This year, though, I stumbled upon an artist I'd never met, Justin Vowell.
I really loved his work. I bought a small piece. I wish I'd bought more. Luckily for me, he lives in Tupelo and is married to the counselor at the K-1 school that feeds into my 2-5 school. So, I can probably connect easily with him.
I want this guy to come work with my fifth graders and am going to try to make that happen. If I can, I will post about it. In the meantime, check out his site. I really love his symbolism. It is fun but political and edgy with a message all at once. I wish I could've found a pic of the Make Art Not War piece he had in his booth today. You guys would love that one.
Here is the piece I bought:

Now, be sure to hop on over to this Instagram and follow real quick-like. We all need a little more of this in our feeds.
I love art so much.
