My Arts Experiences Bucket List Part 2

A few weeks ago, I posted about my arts experiences bucket list. I warned you that there would be more posts about this. I have SO many things to put on that list. I bet I could post once a month for the rest of my life and still not get them all. 

So, here I go with another post... (numbers picking up where the other post left off).

4. I want to see anything by Frida Kahlo. I'd love to see IT ALL. In fact, I'd prefer to visit her blue house. As much as I love her, though, I'd settle for seeing just one of her works. Maybe I can do that this summer while I am in Boston. Apparently, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has Dos Mujeres. 

5. My husband talks about the art in Bangkok all the time. He is from the north of Thailand, but has spent a lot of time in Bangkok. He lived and worked there for several years. Check out this link to learn about some really cool places to visit. I think this is on my Arts Experiences Bucket List mostly because of him. I have yet to visit his home country with him. I want to do that very badly, but I also really want to see this art. He talks about how much I would love it!

6. This may be the most attainable Bucket List item so far. Well, maybe. I think it could be attainable because it is something that happens in my hometown. I don't know if my personal artwork will ever be good enough for this juried festival or not. We will see, because I am working on this one as we speak. I'd like to have a booth of my own artwork showing at the Gum Tree Festival of Art in Tupelo, MS. From there, of course, I'd like to try to do other festivals. The Gum Tree Festival is great. You should visit Tupelo during May for this event. The link has a couple of paragraphs about the history of the festival. The Gum Tree Festival is one of my favorite things about living in Tupelo. I look forward to it every year. There's something for everyone: foodies, children, visual artists, musicians, dancers, performers, truly everyone loves it! Here is a great post by a fellow TupeloBlogger Jeff Jones about the festival. Check it out. If you only have time to check out one of these links, I recommend the Jeff Jones link! The photos are from this year's festival. SaveSaveSaveSave

As always, let me know what's on your bucket list!
