Festival at Night in Prato, Italy

What a spectacular display of sights, sounds and tastes in the center of Prato tonight.

The juxtaposition of 21st technology projecting video imagery on the canvas of the 13th century historical edifices added magic to the spectacle.

Unfortunately the crush of the crowds kept us from enjoying the “areo” ballet performance on the building in Palazzo Pretorio.

We are grateful for the train station security guard who helped us get a taxi and return safely to our apartment in San Lucia.

About Babs

I'm a narrative sculptor navigating her way through the ever-changing currents in what feels like an art ocean. Whether appreciating the calm rhythm of calls for art and exhibiting, or waiting to catch a big wave of inspiration to take me to the top. I just love being in the water. Formerly a pickle packer, theater major, crisis counselor and occupational therapist with a BA in Communications and a BS in Occupational Therapy, only to discover I've always been an artist. My work grows from a strong connection to people and a passion for discovering the beauty in ordinary things. I sculpt figuratively in clay, utilizing the female form and women’s themes. Frequently my inspiration is drawn from childhood memories and my own short poems. Like each of us as humans every work is uniquely influenced by the past and present and has a narrative.
