Columbus Event #ThursdayDoors #IUPUC #BN

The amazing Eric Nastav, Manager of the Barnes and Noble in the Columbus Learning Center on the campus of Indiana University – Purdue University – Columbus, which also includes Ivy Tech, threw an Authors Fair and Per Bastet Publications was invited.

We set up.

Left-to-right, Brett Sanders, Joanna Foreman (behind the books), T. Lee Harris, Sara Marian, Marian Allen (behind the camera).

It was Monkey Day, so I was all Monkied up in Monkey stuff given to me at various times by my pal, Jane.

I immediately headed off on a doorscursion.

And ran into a trio of aliens.

They were non-readers and, being strangers here, themselves, couldn’t give me directions. But I found a door all by myself.

They led into the Atrium, which was full of art! And the honkingest biggingest flag I ever, personally, ever saw up close.

An art.

.

A flag.

.

Another art. Please note silver guns in the piccie to the right. I’ve included the hanging hardware in case that was part of the art. Also for Dan.

.

Another art which is also a joke. Is it still art, if it’s funny?

.

Another door led to more arts.

.

These represent Indiana University, Ivy Tech, and Purdue University. Pretty.

.

And, as we packed up, I gave the event my final seal of approval by providing the traditional blood sacrifice.

The Finger of Admonition must shake with caution until it heals.

.

This has been (just barely) part of Norm Frampton’s weekly Thursday Doors link-up. Head over to Norman’s blog, look at his real door photos, click on the blue frog link, and see some more. I can’t promise you blood, but there will be doors.

    Thanks for including the hardware, without that, art is a pile of stuff on the floor. I like the self-made man, and whatever that thing is hanging above the big honkin flag.

      “Thanks for including the hardware, without that, art is a pile of stuff on the floor.” ROTFLOL! If somebody hasn’t done an installation of art that’s a pile of stuff on the floor, somebody should!

      Ha! No, Vicky, I cut my finger on a plastic box when I was putting away my cloth-and-stuff bookmark makings. Didn’t cut it on the metal; didn’t cut it on the scissors; didn’t cut it on the pins. On the plastic. The monkeys wept.

    LOL! You’re so funny! I haven’t heard “honkin” in sometime. I say it myself sometimes.

    I saw the biggest, honkinest flag in NYC at One World Trade Center Memorial. They can get BIG!

    Add me to the group that liked Self Made Man. That’s a good one!

    Sorry about the Blood Sacrifice! Hope it heals quick, doesn’t sting, and it’s somebody else’s turn next time.

    Fun post; love your humor and it looked like you were having fun exploring. The self made man is something I would have thought up (the way my mind works) but this creative artist beat me to the punch (chisel).
