I should have 100% posted this a week or two ago. However, better late than never, right? 😉
A few weeks ago, IGersChicago hosted an InstaMeet at the Museum of Contemporary Art. I went because I wanted to finally see 1) the Murakami exhibit that I kept hearing about and 2) my friend Jeanne (who sent me a heads up about the meetup). At the last minute, Jeanne sent a text saying she was going to have to skip the event because she wasn’t feeling well. (She really was disappointed.) I was going to not go just because she wouldn’t be there, but decided to just get myself to finally see the exhibit I kept hearing about.
I’m glad I went. (And I totally missed, Jeanne – just in case she’s reading this!)
The garage door. I had purchased a parking spot on SpotHero earlier in the day. I wish I hadn’t because there were a good number of spots on nearby streets. Oh well. Live and learn. 🙂
My friend Fayth’s tattoo placement. I still have my temporary tattoos sitting on the kitchen counter. Not sure where I want to put it. (The Kid told me I could put it on him yesterday. As I approached him, he ran away. Two year olds….)
Here were a few more pictures from the exhibit:
There were a lot of people here, and I didn’t see too many people I knew (about 4?). I am a little sad that the 2012-2014 days of Instagram are over, and that going to these meetups yields a whole new group of faces. But meeting new people is fun – and I feel like I met a lot of friendly people that night. Not everyone was into taking pictures…or even Instagram. They came to check out the exhibit!
I adored this girl’s outfit (I told her that only certain people could pull it off & she definitely was pulling it off) and asked if I could take her picture:
She was very nice, and I found out she drove from Madison where she goes to school. I was pretty surprised to hear that she came down just for the exhibit. “He’s my favorite artist,” she explained. I get it (as I once woke up at dawn to be the second in line for Giada de Laurentiis‘ book signing. The first in line was a 9-year-old aspiring chef.)
And that’s it. I need to get out and shoot more cool events more often. 🙂
