ACE Best Ever
The August Art Crawl Experience - they said it was the best yet; they being a number of people I bumped into, both at the time, and subsequently.
The custom cars turned out in force, this time lined up along Center Street Promenade. And craft booths stretched almost the entire length of the street. The main action, as usual, was at the junction with Lemon where the Anaheim Historical Society had a beer garden and a large area was devoted to Swingin’ on the Promenade with Adam Tunney and The 5 Punch Combo. There were swing lessons and a dance team demo.
The next busy area was outside the Ice Rink where the Coco and the Phat Cats played the most delicious jazz numbers and the crowds enjoyed the most delicious fare from the food trucks.
Ye Olde Spyglass. Veronica Marshman opened her new dance studio on Harbor - a few doors up from the Arthaus, last January and runs classes in belly dancing, tribal fusion and other styles most nights of the week. She and her dancers provided fine entertainment. Yes – they also thrilled onlookers with the fire-dancing.
Moving on up to the Rothick Arthaus on Harbor the steps to the gallery were as packed at the internal gallery space. The current Mega Mouse show – billed as a Gallery Take Over by Popzilla Gallery was clearly a great attraction.
Always a little left out in the cold is the Mito Fountain area outsiide the MUZEO. They held a reception for artists connected with the Orange Art Association juried show, with singing enteratinment provided by artistes from The Chance Theatre. For some reason people seem not to want to wander down past the fountains only to have to return to head up the the crowds further up Center Street Promenade. But the MUZEO lays on fine events in their courtyard. Always worth a visit.
Jake Perez applies finishing touches to his latest creation.
