For my part, they exhibited oversized prints of every page from my Thoreau at Walden book. It was pretty exciting to see them all up, lining one entire wall of the venue.
I really didn't know what to expect, but there was a nice crowd coming in throughout the night, everyone was friendly, and I sold a bunch of stuff! The audience was truly interested, and willing to engage with the art and the artists, which was refreshing.
At the end of the evening I spoke to Francisco Loyola, the main force behind the pop-ups, about the amount of work he's done to bring these arts events to downtown Kenosha. It hadn't been easy, with years of effort just beginning to bear fruit. I was really impressed with how devoted these folks were to improving the quality of life in their town. It was inspiring.
