Meet Byron. He’s my sock monkey, and yes, he’s hot pink and has a mohawk and an eye-patch. Not only is Felice (of D*S scholarship finalist fame) a talented print-maker and book maker, but clearly she has mad sock monkey skills. “Byron” was the first – of what I’m sure will be many – sock monkeys, which is a workshop she teaches from time to time at the American Visionary Art Museum (aka, one of my favorite places on earth). She has a lot of great workshops cooked up for the fall (far beyond things made out of socks), that coincide with the new exhibit “All Faiths Beautiful,” so be sure to stay tuned to AVAM’s events page to see what’s in store. Thanks again for my awesome sock monkey, Felice (and special shout-out to the real Byron we met at Tapas Teatro).
