and a few comments from some of the artists themselves……..
“I’ve been here everyday….it’s really relaxed, everybody has been so kind to me! Today i have had many positive comments from visitors and i have also been able to sell some masks, handkerchiefs and a bag! I’m really happy with this opportunity!”
“This collaboration presents a different opportunity, a different atmosphere and a totally different type of visitor! Really interesting i’ve talked to many people casually, in fact the longest conversation was for over an hour! Im surprised by the way visitors in this situation differ so much from say visitors in an art gallery environment, it’s really enjoyable!”
