Next Stop Indiana

Our next Adventure takes us to Big Car Gallery in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Filthy first connected with Jim Walker, Big Car's Executive Director, on Second Life. Jim showed great interest in the unique way Filthy is melding the virtual and real worlds to bring his artwork to all sorts of people everywhere. They cooked up a plan to bring Filthy to Indianapolis. Included in the plan was the debut of a virtual version of the Big Car Gallery in Second Life.

Filthy's opening event for the show coincided with Big Car's First Friday, which included live music and a virtual tour of the Second Life Big Car Gallery. There was a huge crowd and lots of buzz. It was a blast.

There was an eclectic crowd at the gallery in Second Life too. Below in the top hat is one of Filthy's best buds in SL, Esch Snoats ,relaxing with a drink and talking to the babes.

While we were in Indiana we stayed with Anya's brother Dmitri, his wife Antonia and their daughter Anisa, in their beautiful home in Bloomington. They were of course wonderful hosts. They brought us to see some of the sights in Bloomington and took us letterboxing in Indianapolis. Dmitri owns the company rock, paper, scissors a well-known "World Music" publicity and marketing firm in Bloomington. Antonia is a photographer, artist and mom. Anisa is a bright, talkative, creative wonder!!

We got to introduce them all (our niece especially) to our dog Monkey. He was (as always) a very well behaved doggy. We also got to bring the family to Indianapolis to see the show at Big Car. Monkey came too. We all had a fun day!
