Leg Warmers to good use

Hello there!

Recently the Ladies made a bold move and decided to put up our biggest tag to date. Maybe some of you even hear about it on the news.

LFS made 7 foot by 7 foot leg warmers for our very own alien dancers outside the Denver Convention Center. We decided they needed to bundle up a bit for the winter time.






7 News came along at 3 AM with us as your ladies attempted their most illegal tagging ever.

Here's a BBC link: (Isn't that cool!? We made it on the BBC)

We just recently heard about what happened to our leg warmers after they were taken down (being up only till 7:45 AM). And we'd really like to share it with you. Check it out!

Here's an email from The Denver Office of Cultural Affairs:

Hello,

I just wanted to let you know how cool I thought the leg warmers were that you all made and put on the Dancing Statues outside of the DCPA! I coordinate homeless outreach efforts for the City of Denver and was contacted by a woman I work with in the Denver Office of Cultural Affairs (DOCA). After the grounds keepers took your leg warmers off of the dancers, they ended up in the DOCA. My colleague was telling me about them and how they didn't know what to do with them and if we had any use for them. I asked one of our women's overnight shelters, The Delores Project, if they could use them as blankets on their beds for the women they serve. They agreed, and when I showed the ED of Delores your art, she absolutely loved it and was so thrilled to be getting these works of art to share with the women.

I know that wasn't your original intent and I'm sorry the art couldn't stay up on the statues longer, but I just wanted to let you know where they ended up. They will be put to good use at the shelter.

Thanks!



We could not be any happier that our work ended up in a good place. We just love that this happened!!!

Love,

LFS
