On March 24th, 1998, Windy City Times included on their cover images and a write up of Day of Beauty and Ritual, which I curated with Kathleen O’Shea and Kokoe Johnson. Day of Beauty was a performance art circus celebrating spring as a time of rebirth, renewal and rejuvenation through a collection of performances, installations, and unique beauty treatments, climaxing with the Spring Equinox Ritual.

More from Windy City Times in A Very Faerie Spring:

Peter Mueller peforms with the Tök Tök percussion group at the Chicago Radical Faerie Circle’s week of fun and frolic March 16-22, at the former Randolph Street Gallery, to celebrate the arrival of spring. About 50 faeries camped out (and camped it up) for four days in a makeshift fairyland. “Delilah” came from Short Mountain, Tenn., to participate in the lively and colorful event. Highlights of the week included an environmental art workshop, a performance art circus and a spring equinox ritual.
