Migrate & Dally

Migration opened last Friday. Here are a few shots  haphazardly taken during the reception. (I’m still mourning the loss of my DSLR, and making due with this point and shoot camera.)

We stopped by the Dally in the Alley on Saturday, which is always a fun end of summer event. This was Felix’ first Dally. He loved the music!

Dally History
What began as an inner city art fair in 1977 evolved into a performing arts festival when it was moved to its present alley and renamed in 1982 to “DALLY IN THE ALLEY”, the title of a medieval drinking song. Great musical talent, good beer and a remarkable string of fabulous September weather has indelibly marked the alley at Second and Forest in Detroit ’s Cass Corridor as the site of the best music festival in the Midwest .(more history on the Alley)

Migration manifests in many ways: changes to a neighborhood’s demographics, personal identity, contested borders, or movement in a lifetime or a week. These changes bring about conflicts (and resolutions) of space, economies, labor and industry, and race and ethnicity, to name a few. This exhibition brings together a wide range of creative work inspired by these issues.

creative play at work

I was able to fill in for a couple extra hours yesterday at the Boutique, which meant bringing Felix. I know I have mentioned before that it can be challenging bringing a baby to work. This time I really put my mind to making games Felix and I could play but that still had an end product/finished task for me.

The most successful of these attempts was reorganizing the hanger rack.

He loves playing with hangers. I get freaked out when he tries to walk with them, but as long as he’s sitting we’re both happy.

He enjoyed discovering that the card rack spins.

Climbing into empty spaces is fun too.

I tried peaking his interest in playing with some silky scarves and a basket to no avail. Hangers are much cooler.

There are still frantic moments here and there, but Felix and I are learning how to make work days run smoothly and dare I say, enjoyable.

Lastly, have I mentioned how awesome my boss is? It’s such a relief to be able to bring Felix with me when I need to. Shop local! In doing so, your supporting wonderful businesses run by brilliant people, like Sandhya.
