to present a day of continuing education for designers from across the region.
Since Mary was staying at 21C, I met her there on Friday night before going to dinner.
We had so much fun touring the contemporary art gallery that’s built in to the hotel.
I thought this metal sculpture was fantastic!
It simulates a tornado and the random collection of common every day things scooped up in it’s path.
Both fanciful and terrifying, it captures a powerful moment in time.

This sculpture is iconic today
but did you know it was originally designed in 1964
as a Christmas card for the Museum of Modern Art?
A replica sits in the lobby of 21C.

I love this hotel. It’s so funky!
The exterior serves as a revolving art exhibit
that’s even more thought-provoking than what’s inside.
The penguins are the unofficial mascots so you never know where they’ll show up next.
Rooftop party anyone?
