This Saturday, I attended the reception for the CMU Student Art Exhibition. There were many people there – students, people from the community, elders with cameras and curiosity in their eyes, the press, family and/or friends of the artists who had cheery reunions with them. I saw my friend Ife, who had two pieces in the exhibit and she was exploring the gallery with her boyfriend. It was also a competition in a way – anyone could vote on their favorite piece and drop the name in a box. After I had made three rounds, I made my contribution and left with a “CMU Student Art Exhibition” card.
I was scared of this one. There was something about the eyelashes that made me half-expect her to open both her eyes and mouth, and then devour my soul.

Impressive how talented these young people are. I am glad I went.
