terrariums!!

my friend brooke is hosting a terrarium workshop in collaboration with arthur mag!!!
this is so cool…i’m definitely going.

sign up soon!

at the onset of summer, a group of amazing designers/artists congregated to build 6 teepees at the surf lodge in montauk, ny – bob melet, mike diamond, robert mckinley, tracy feith and rogan gregory…all to benefit the local skate park there! how rad.

unfortunately, east hampton’s fire marshall demanded they be taken down soon after…but, kudos to these busy guys for giving their time and muscle for kids and what they love.
thanks for finding, meredith!

moore bikes, please

from fellow fp’er whitney…she has a good eye.
“i stopped by moore college of art and design to pick up my bike from the bicycle: people + ideas in motion exhibit. there was one bike there that screamed free people; wish i would have had my camera.
(NOTE: whitney went back and grabbed some pix for us – rad)

it was all done up with glitter, small figurines, flowers, etc. it definitely wasn’t for riding but it was wonderful to look at.
bicycle: people + ideas in motion celebrates philadelphia’s passion and commitment to the bicycle with exhibitions and events that explore the art and design of the bicycle—from functional object to a canvas for good causes, personal expression and civic-mindedness.”
runs through october 13…
