January 28, 2018
Think the movie with Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell, not the event in Punxsutawney, PA. It's the artistic chance to repeat, ... a do-over. A sketch event that allows you to try endless variations and loads of explorations. Unlike other sketch events where we go from one subject to the next, the idea for the Groundhog Day Sketch is to pick one subject and do several versions, changing things, trying new ideas, experimenting.
Monet's famous Haystack paintings would be an example of a Groundhog Day exploration:

- The museum doesn't mind if you bring a stool as long as you don't block traffic.
- The Museum has a pencil only policy that is unevenly enforced. Often when the guards change - so do the rules.
- I always check my coat. I use the school entrance at 81st Street and check my coat there. They may ask you to also check your backpack. If you sling it over one shoulder that's often okay.
