TC Maker a hit at Artist Maker Day

September 14th, 2014 by SLSolarz

Today TC Maker President, Becca Steffen, Secretary, Bob Poate, and I represented TC Maker at Artist Maker Day on the Minneapolis Convention Center Plaza.

TC Maker President, Becca Steffen, and Secretary, Bob Poate, show visitors how to make their own Musical PVC Chair at Artist Maker Day.

About 700 visitors attended the event where they encountered “TC Maker presents Make Your Own Musical PVC Chair with Susan Solarz“. Although we had 4 work stations, there were people waiting in line for most of the 6 hour event!

TC Maker can provide artists with the space and equipment necessary to produce work.  And we met with a lot of enthusiasm from the arts community.

Thank you to everyone who helped out including Becca, Bob P, Bob G., Sarah B, Steve Skalko, Steven Anderson, Jude Dornisch and Mike N.

As an update: the front door is open. You may enter. There is still work to be done on the remodeling, but we’ve made some great progress and you may use the front door.

Cam anticipates that everything will be done before October 1st, except for new lighting.

Thank you all for your help and patience.
