I attended the two parts of the con I never have enough time for when I'm going to programming: the Art Show and the Dealers' Room. I had a wonderful chance to catch up with some of my WisCon besties, from the West Coast, the Rocky Mountains, and darkest London.Thank heavens for tahliaday
Not only does she create beautiful, dreamy, scary watercolors "Uncharted territories from another reality"
, she also coordinated the WisCon Art Show this year. The art was lovely, as always, but the layout completely changed. She opened up the space so that there was room to contemplate each piece. A dozen people could be in the show and move around freely. It was a masterpiece of accessible design, and it made all art show visitors very happy.
All the WisCon 39 concom, please take a bow. Peruse the list of more than 70 names
, volunteers all. They coordinated and planned and lugged boxes and created press releases and monitored safety and wrangled programs and made it all happen. Some folks predicted the year of succession would be rocky, but I was impressed by how smoothly things ran. Sure, there were ocassional glitches, but mostly I've heard great reports from all around. HOORAY!
