Posted on Friday November 18, 2005 by Steven Fischer
What a great day!
At the American Visionary Arts Museum for the 2nd Annual Baltimore Immigration Summit by 7am (the only chance we’d have to coordinate the screening of Freedom Dance DVDs with the AV staff). Met the Mayor of Baltimore at 10 a.m., got photo of Craig and I with him for the web site (as you know, over the summer The Mayor’s Office endorsed Freedom Dance); gave keynote speech with Craig at noon to about 200 people; upon driving back home this afternoon received phone call from Meredith Price, a journalist ith Baltimore Magazine, who had been talking with the Jewish Community Center Marketing Director about the Freedom Dance exhibition. She interviewed me over the phone for an article to be published in the January issue (to promote the exhibit).
Many thanks to Beery Adams at the Mayor’s Office and Elizabeth Clifford, the Summit’s coordinator, for inviting us as keynote speakers, for believing in and supporting Freedom Dance, and for helping with introductions to the Mayor.
Also today received a nice email from a fellow in Canada who’s seen a music-themed cartoon I’d drawn months and months ago (forget where he said he saw it), but wrote asking if it could possibly be used by the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals. Always flattering when your work is recognized like that.
Such an exciting day. Need more of them!
