Mimosas & Palomas 2017

June 13, 2017

It was a lovely day in mid-October, beautiful weather, if not a splash toasty, but in comparison to the long summer months behind us, this day was perfect. We had Latin-inspired live musicians, amazing Brazilian drumming, live aerosol art by the crazy talented Jeff Slim and Averian Chee, delicious crepes, and of course mimosas and palomas to refresh our palettes.

Mimosas & Palomas was a culmination of a year’s worth of art brunches coordinated in downtown Mesa, popping up at different businesses each month with local music and an easy art project to spark creativity. The result of David Crummey’s imagination, this was a CC Art Brunch on steroids. Extra activity, extra art, extra music and extra people to boot (fortunately no extra body hair or voice-changing). David even personally laser cut close to 200 wooden pigeons (palomas) at our local maker-space, HeatSync Labs, for people to paint and take home. These little palomas are still sitting happily on the desks and shelves of those who attended, adding a little ray of sunshine and a reminder of a lovely day with new friends. 

If you’re feeling nostalgic for this event, be warned that chatters of another one this fall are in the works. If you’re feeling sad because you missed out, buck up little buddy, because we will fill that hole in your heart before you can say, “what the heck is a paloma?!” And you better believe we’ll have a few new surprises in store this time around, so be on the lookout for more details around the bend. We can’t wait to tell you all about Mimosas & Palomas 2017.
