What’s in a Bowl of Ice Cream?
This guest post is by Jean Frank Stark. There is more in an ice cream bowl than ice cream when you purchase yours, September 16–17. You’ll enjoy the sweetness of knowing you’ve encouraged artists to experiment with creative ideas they might not have dared to try. Madeline Nossiff hasn’t thrown on the wheel since she left college over a year ago. “Finding the time, space and excuse to do what you love is a challenge,” she said.
