It will be next to the CHIRP record fair. I'll be volunteering Saturday from 2:15- 4:45, and 7:30- 10:15, and also Sunday 4:45- 7:30 pm. So stop by and say hi.

Potato Love Across the Earth

73 Uber Tuber postcards have arrived from Australia. They all came in a special potato package, sent by Brendan, coordinator for "The Humble Spud." People wrote the cards directly from the show. It was terrific to receive so many original potato messages, and drawings. And it's nice to know there are potato fans way down on the other side of the earth.
So, the postcard project was a starchy success.
Thanks for helping to share the potato love!

Postcards from Australia

"The Humble Spud" potato art exhibition was well received, and even covered by several newspapers. It was definitely a day for tubers in Sydney!
People wrote messages to Uber Tuber on Uber Tuber postcards. They were made to be mailed back to me, (or to my parent's address actually), but before that they were archived, and you can see them here:

and here's the Uber Tuber display:

Kudos to everyone who made this show happen. And to all those potato fans from Australia!

Uber Tuber in Australia: "The Humble Spud"

Uber Tuber is participating in "The Humble Spud," an all potato art exhibition taking place in Sydney Australia this weekend.
My part will be a mailing project with heart-shaped potato postcards. People will be invited to take the cards, write down their thoughts about potatoes, and then mail them back here. If it works, it will unite potato fans from across the globe.

Also, their local news is highlighting the event with an Uber Tuber image.
The Chi-town tubers have gone international!
