Spark Meetup

My first Spark event was at the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh yesterday.

Everyone got to create a unique tee shirt in the Factory (so named for Warhol’s actual screen printing production studio) in the basement of the museum. There were spark-inspired images such as a spark plug and lightning bolts in addition to other screens.  I had to double check which end of a spark plug sparks before I printed the bolts.

Apparently this was one of the more informal Spark meetups. It was a pretty intimate gathering with people who do different kinds of innovative programming. I look forward to learning more about Spark and how it overlaps with the MITCH Collective mission.

P.S. I wore a shirt that I rainbow-rolled myself and it got some nice compliments.
