The Sad Tale of the Lost Frisbees
Three years ago, when we organized the first Green Market Exposition at the Barnum Museum in Bridgeport we decided to make the frisbee a symbol of the event, because it represented the spirit of innovation for the city. We received a donation from Sikorksy to purchase 200 blank Wham-O frisbees that local artists could paint, to put on exhibit and sell at auction to raise money. We gave one to 35 artists who signed a pledge to return them with art work. Three years later, only these 5 have come back. We are holding on to the remaining frisbees for when a more organized effort can be initiated.
