Do you remember your first purchase?

We were lucky enough to catch Jozie's first purchase and her first performance art piece called "Toys R Jozie" held January 9, 2010 at the Toys R Us near Fashion Square Mall. Organized by her father,'s Dan Ginader, the performance piece required Jozie to buy whatever she wanted under $15 and required her mother, father and guests to not influence her purchases. We followed her around the store:

Jozie and family arrive

Programs are handed out and the shopping begins


he $75 dinosaur will have to wait.

One of many swaps

Dan gives a preview of performances to come

The final selection: "Jungle in My Pocket" and a green ball.

Jozie is prevented from completing her very first purchase due to the green ball needing a price check.

The 10" balls are $1.79 and Jozie is asked if she needs any batteries by the store employee.

Jozie completes her purchase (her first EVER!) and receives 32 cents in change.

Jozie signs her program for a fan

Mobile Art Show | Orlando, FL
On August 5, 2009,'s very first Mobile Art Show took to the roads of Orlando, Florida. From 10am to 7pm, the show was either prepping, showing or traveling. For this first show, a UHaul was chosen to carry the over-40-piece collection of locally-made art because it was easier than getting an ice cream truck, which is the ideal vehicle for this. The locations for each stop were sent via twitter to I, Mark Baratelli, was the driver and Brian Feldman was the co-pilot. Dan Ginader assisted me in the hanging of the art. Photos:
