The Love Discourse reception was a huge success!
It was a joyous evening as we celebrated love and its broad spectrum of emotion, expression, and experience.
Joe Kerman, with Sector 67, reads a note from the robot that he created for the show.
was a great help for the show overall – making the phones for the listening booth, the hearts available for sale, the wooden questions that divided the work, the wooden blocks for the ‘build a relationship’ interactive piece, and of course, the robot.
Participants could push the green button and a handwritten note would be created!
Many interactive pieces were on tables.
The typewriter was one of the more popular items, as children and adults of all ages wrote notes and letters to people.
This was another interactive piece, created by local artist Char DeVos. Ribbons were woven through a heart, and participants could drop their marble into the heart to see where their love would go.
We were so proud to have Suzuki Strings of Madison play for us throughout the night. They are so incredibly talented, and one audience member noted how brilliant it was that they never worked with sheet music, just listened to and watched each other. It was a joy to hear such beautiful music from such talented students of music.
