MC Ginsberg: Objects of Art…and River Monsters

Thursday, Oct 27, I will be on MC Ginsberg. 110 East Washington St. Iowa City, IA

Well, we’re going to temporarily update MC Ginsberg’s product lines to include Giant Tentacles!   I’m going to spend Thursday (Oct 27) stuffed into a rooftop terrace overlooking East Washington st, downtown Iowa City.

Stop by and wave hello!

And I already mentioned this, but KGAN CBS-2 news from Cedar Rapids is scheduled to do a live news cast with me in the background on Thursday morning! (between 5-7am)

More visits this week in Iowa City…which I will announce just before they happen so keep watching.

The Kraken live on CBS-2 morning news!

Edit 2011-10-27: Watch a highlight from the newscast!

Hey! Just a quick heads up that KGAN CBS-2 news from Cedar Rapids is scheduled to do their Thursday morning LIVE news cast with me in the background!

They’ll be showing off a little bit about where I come from, how I work, and what I mean.

My builders will be on the news a bit too. I suppose I can surrender the spot-light to them for a few moments… After all, they did spend weeks and weeks stitching me together. 🙂

KGAN will be broadcasting live from my new spot. I’ll appear Thursday morning on a new location somewhere in downtown Iowa City…see if you can identify where!

Hope you can catch it!

River Monster Tentacles

Woo Hoo – I’m going to Iowa City!
Home of the Hawkeyes, writers of award winning books, the former Capitol of Iowa, and one of the coolest downtown collections of restaurants, bars, shops, vagrants, venues, and community spaces I’ve ever seen.   I’m very excited to be here!

Starting Thursday evening , Oct 20, you can see me at the former Vito’s restaurant building in the Ped-Mall in downtown Iowa City.   I’ll be there through Saturday evening.

NOTE:  I’ll be visible Thursday evening starting 6:00pm.  Friday and Saturday 10:00AM – till I get tired late at night:-)

So come down this weekend and say hello!   If you’re a photographer, bring your camera – This will make for some interesting shooting!


And keep a sharp eye out…I’m going to pop up here again pretty soon…:-)
(I notify people on my list whenever I’m about to appear)
