Go check out my oil drum art work Fashionista Eco Sink at the BANG THE DRUM Energy & Environmental Art Exhibition at Hartfords Union Station 7am – 11 pm until May 25th, 2012.

I was also the event planner for the opening reception. So I got to pick the music we would listen to and the food we would eat. Oh boy!! Here I am with the band I chose, Chief Archaic from Collinsville:

At the end of the night, guests were treated to a special appearance by Ravenbane’s Firecraft:

It was an AWESOME opening reception!
