Our Visit to The Load of Fun

On Monday, we visited the Load of Fun on North Avenue. Melissa Webb was our extraordinary tour guide to this artist space. We visited Melissa's studio, as well as those of Carrie Fucile, Mara Neimanis/Inflight Theater, Jimmy Joe Roche and Sergio Martinez. Thank you to all the artists who gave so generously of their time. Following are photos from our visit.
