Check out some pics from last week’s record snowfall in Dallas – submitted by Dallas HKSers. Thanks for sharing your photos (full album is on the SOURCE)!
If you have a little time in your life or are looking for another creative outlet, you should visit the Creative Arts Center of Dallas! I arrived for the first time last Thursday to help paint bowls to donate to the Empty Bowls event and was impressed by the variety of art classes under one roof and the enthusiasm of those engaged in the classes/workshops. Check it out: http://www.creativeartscenter.org/.
Also, the 11th annual Empty Bowls luncheon to benefit the North Texas Food Bank will be held on Friday, February 19, from 11-1 at the Meyerson Symphony Center. You pay $35 at the door and get to take home a handmade bowl, enjoy a meal and listen to live music. More here: http://ntfb.org/d_empty_bowls_info.cfm.

On November 15, 2009, several members of the HKS Detroit Polish Cultural and Social Club met in an undisclosed location to prepare Grandma’s infamous traditional Polish Culinary Recipes for an event of high expectations and celebrations. Bob Piatek, the ring leader, Bill Filip, Vince Czarnowski, Christopher Ozog, David Taylor (The adopted Pole), and John Avdoulos (AKA the long lost Greek Pole), decided to carry on a tradition from last year providing a Polish meal to share with the office what many of us have grown up knowing to love (and our waist lines prove it).
On Monday, November 16, smells of Galobki (Cabbage Rolls), Meatballs, Potato pancakes, Kolaczki’s, and Bigos (Hunter’s Stew) wafted through the office and distracted people as they were working….wondering when lunch was going to happen. Polka’s announced that the food was ready, blaring some beats throughout the office and starting the smiles on people’s faces, knowing they are in for a treat – some even did a Polka to the kitchen in preparation for the exercise one must partake in after some good old fashioned Polish food consumption. After everyone had their fill, it took awhile for the afternoon to once more commence, as a food coma came over everyone – Grandma would be proud. We look forward to next year’s event as this brought back memories of cooking with Grandma and gathering around the table with family and friends as we give thanks for all we have and all we can celebrate together.

A site-specific play experience by Hudson-Powell & Joel Gethin Lewis for the Big Screen Edinburgh, produced by Bren O’Callaghan. Commissioned by City of Edinburgh Council with further development (phase 2) made possible by AND: Abandon Normal Devices Festival of New Cinema and Digital Culture.
A long video but worth the investment of time. This designer has an interesting perspective on the balance of work and life, and how to use them to better each other.
If you don’t have time to watch the entire video skip ahead to 10:00 minutes. There is a very interesting identity system created for a music center that uses the architecture of the building as a key component. A very interesting intersection of graphic design and architecture. I would love to hear your thoughts.
But, I would strongly suggest watching the entire video.
