Sunday, August 12, 2001, there was an artist's reception at Art Apartment, as well as a display of the felt pieces created by Lynn and her loved ones.
[Ulyana's piece, titled "Friends on many levels"]
We were grateful to be mentioned in the Lansing State Journal twice, including the Sunday paper.
Several visitors came thanks to those articles. One of those unexpected visitors was a beloved teacher of Lynn's, with whom she had studied in 1980.
Guests included friends from the arts community, music community, dance community, students, friends and family.
The reception was heartwarming and rewarding in every sense.
