The second Sauerkraut Dinner Party was great. Not at all what I expected. Not a single person from OSU art department showed up, which surprised me. About 10 people showed up, same number as the first party. And I had the evening better structured this time. We did the paper shredding at the beginning. Most people talked and shared a little bit about what they were letting go of. It was really cool to see people doing that and opening up a little. I must have succeeded in creating a space were people felt like they could do that.
In a way I'm almost glad that no one from the art department showed up, or at least I'm not upset about it. I'm not interested in making community artwork that is just for the art community. I'm excited to see who comes to the future Sauerkraut Dinner Parties.
