Barbara Koenen -- Gri Gri 4 Spring
In 1998, I spent a month making installations on the streets of downtown Chicago, as an offering for spring.  Using spices, sugars and other powders, plus my trusty Popeil Donut Maker, each grigri was done in the morning.  I returned at day's end to see how it fared.  This was part of the exhibition, "Not in my lobby, you don't" at the Hyde Park Art Center, curated by Chuck Thurow.
