Beh Beh Bohemians!
Created with Admarket's flickrSLiDR.
Beh Beh Bohemians! What a gathering of Artistic and Museumistic peoples. Museum night at Galeria Schaap was filled with colourful and creative folk all brought together with the one goal, to create the first Museum of the Bohemian. The Slagerij was transfomed into a box apon box apon box playground. Artists and inspired folk came to claim their box to take home and fill with their Bohemian story. Many are still waiting to be collected !!! so if you put your mark on a box during the party, come and collect it as all exhibits must be returned before November 30.
The Live music ranged from subtle to bombastic, from the singing saw to the Elctro Kelder - you never knew what you were missing until it was almost too late. Absinth, poetry, music, meeting and formation rolling (to be posted another day). What does it take to be a Bohemian in our time? All those who came and all who come to collect a box hold the key.
TO ALL ARTISTS PLEASE COME AND COLLECT YOUR BOX, SEVERAL HAVE ALREADY BEEN RETURNED, THE WORD IS OUT the first MUSEUM OF THE BOHEMIAN is shaping up to be a truely unique eigentijds verhaal ......
Tell your colleagues, remind yourself 30 November is the opening of the MUSEUM, boxes are already travelling through Holland even to England to be filled with Bohemianness. The programme for the 30th is yet to be compiled but it will be including Uilleann pipe player Dicky Deegan, The unveiling of the Flag, Historical information dating back 300 years, piano recital and your personal contribution.
Beh Beh Bohemian!
