Michael showed a slideshow of some pieces in MOBA's permanent collection and some submissions that have been rejected. For example, they don't do velvet, they don't do paint by numbers, they don't do 'kid art', but they do do this (ha -- do do):
Some folks brought items to submit to MOBA's permanent collection and one lucky lady, Marlow, from Unusual Life, had an item Michael thought was worthy. His pronouncement was met with her screams of, "It's going in the museum! It's going in the museum! It's going in the museum!"
After getting a piece into MOBA, Marlow invited Michael and I to check out their house full of art -- specifically their Paint By Numbers Room. It was breathtaking. They even have an Elvis-shaped topiary in on their patio!
All in all, it was a lovely evening.
Especially if you don't count the pat where I borrowed a projector from work for the slide show portion -- a projector that was stolen within minutes of me borrowing it -- which required that I procure a second projector within one hour of the event starting.
Yeah, it was totally awesome as long as you don't count that part.
Ahhhhhhhh, MOBA. You rule.
