Out of chaos comes order. But first, stabbing headaches.
We recently had a fundraising event where guests were invited to recreate large famous works of art in multi-colored gum balls side by side with an artist known for doing these fun installations.
Sounds great, right?
Well, we ordered the wrong gum balls and three days before the event the proper ones arrived…unsorted.
All 160,000 of them.
Every staff member, docent, and friend we could coerce into helping was in the gallery for three long days sorting little gum balls by colour.
We did it, it all came together at the last minute and the event was a huge success. But I never want to see another gum ball again.
