GOArts is short for Georgia Open Arts Month which takes place each October.
It's a collective campaign to raise awareness about arts in our area.

Last October, I took up a challenge to see 31 shows in 31 days and blog about it... in the end, I saw 41.
Sure, it was a bit tiring but it was also an amazing opportunity.

The column on the left is a linked schedule of everything I saw.
For a more logical read of this blog o'adventures, scroll down to the first entry and start reading there.

I'm not a reviewer, nor am I an art critic.
I aim to raise public awareness about the great tapestry of arts & culture in our area and inspire you to get out there and enjoy it.

Feeling Like Phileas Fogg (Prelude to Event #19)

If you think that traveling around the Atlanta area to see 31 shows in 31 days is quite an adventure,  you're right!  Imagine, though, how extraordinary and exciting a journey around the globe in 80 days would be, other than the fact that your fortunes would be at stake should you not complete the terms of the challenge.

Yeah, Phileas Fogg makes me look like an amateur as he embarks on an "Amazing Race."  Tonight I'll be following him at Theatrical Outfit's production of Around the World in 80 Days performed at The Balzer Theater.  For those of you inclined to do a little homework before seeing the show, check this out: Les Voyages Extraordinaires, The Works of Jules Gabriel Verne, 8 Feb 1828 to 24 Mar 1905.
