What an invigorating way to kick off a work week! I had the pleasure of speaking this morning to the Fresno District of the California Federation of Women’s Clubs at the organization’s annual Federation Fair. The topic was art. (The morning included judging the work of members and high schoolers.) I talked about ArtHop, the Fresno Art Museum and my advice if you want to buy art. (Pick something that’s meaningful and personal to you, and don’t fret about the investment angle.) We also branched into my thoughts on the recent Fresno Grand Opera production of “A Streetcar Named Desire,” the challenges of rejuvenating downtown Fresno and even what I thought of the Oscars last night. (I don’t have cable anymore, so I didn’t watch it. I just followed Rick Bentley’s Twitter feed.) Thanks to these hard-working ladies for all they do in terms of community service — and for inviting me to speak.
