Follow the White Rabbit - Serve the People

It was the last day of winter, a glorious and sun filled day, the graffiti on the pavement said "Follow the White Rabbit" and so we did; we followed and we wandered  through the streets of Chippendale with many people converging as we walked; to the infamous line, the queue the White Rabbit opening night queue. We were there early for the 6.30 opening and saw many friends in the line already, or having arrived later standing behind; we made new art friends in the queue too; maybe this queuing for art is not so bad after all!

The show and the opening night art crowd were both as fabulous as ever.. and while the crowd have moved on the art show itself; "Serve the People" remains open until 2 February 2014. At which time no doubt I will be back in the queue for another round of Following the Rabbit art goodness..
