There were thousands of people in the street but pretty low attendance for our OS in July. We were competing with Taste of Chicago. Summerdance a Millennium Park concert, sidewalk cafes and many other activities being held outdoors on a beautiful summer evening. This is when we put our heads together the following week to think about whether our OS should be a monthly event or one we hold 2-3 times a year. Yet, meeting just a few very interesting (and interested) visitors seems to make it worthwhile, at least for me. As stated before, we never know who is going to come through the door. It could be a true art lover or your next big collector. In fact, a young couple who came in near the end of the evening made my night. They stayed quite a while, looking at everything and asking good questions. It isn’t all about sales, not by a long shot.....
Quiet night-but that's OK...
