We all went to the unveiling of this year’s St. Paul Winter Carnival button at Como Zoo earlier this month (Art’s on the board of the carnival, “The Coolest Celebration on Earth.” It’s been bringing people outdoors in the dead of winter for 122 years in St. Paul. In the words of Gnarls Barkely, “Crazy.”) At the event, the polar bears at Como Zoo unveiled the button by tearing a blubber-smeared tarp off the artist’s rendering. Cool! There was a kids event, offering music, crafts and, as you can see from Jesse’s picture above, face-painting.
