Columbus, Ohio! We arrived a bit early so we decided to walk around and explore the downtown area.
- Anna Vo and Mimi Thi Nguyen: so many feelings.

- Daniela Capistrano
Around 7pm we headed to Ryan’s, our event organizer for Columbus and host for the evening. This printmaking-art space/punk house has an amazing first floor filled with printing materials and equipment. The second flow is the living space for the three folks who work and reside there.

We had an amazing vegan chili and cornbread dinner with Ryan and then headed to Skylab, which is on the fifth floor of a building in downtown Columbus.
We’re writing this from the van so we’ll just let the photos tell the rest of the story …
- Alexis McCrimmon (l) and Osa Atoe (r)
Alexis is a filmmaker and screened two collage style experimental shorts last night. But we didn’t take any pictures because we were too enraptured.

- Alexis and our host Ryan at Skylab

We’ll be updating this post with more photos later today, we just need to get them off of everyone’s phones ^_^
Tonight we have an evening event at the University of Pittsburgh. We can’t wait to see Heather Manning, who helped organized our previous Pittsburgh show at The Mr. Roboto Project, but who couldn’t attend because she had to work.
If you’re in the area, come through and please help us signal boost. <3 Thanks fam.
1) We’re doing a zine about this tour, so if you were part of any of the events, let us know if you want to contribute.
2) We’re doing a national conference in 2014.
3) We love you.
