The December and January art build weekends had a bunch of Töads preparing for upcoming events. In February is Frostburn, an outdoor weekend arts festival where Töad Meädow will have an encampment.

The following month we will be rolling out in Buffalo’s famous Saint Patrick’s Day Parade with our art car, rolling exhibits and wandering performers.

Here are some things we worked on

Monthly Art Builds: A report on the first two

To further encourage the creation of artistic stupidity, Töad Meädow is now hosting monthly art build weekends. The Töads gather, the workshop is opened and we turn materials into art. You’re invited to work on and collaborate with your own personal project, or you can come and help others’ projects.

We’ve had two very productive art build weekends so far; one in August and one in September. Continue reading

Haikus a la Carte

So we’re partying at the World Maker Faire and Lisa, rolls up. She’s with The Haiku Guys, sits down with a typewriter and  busts out 4 personal haikus for us.

It was intimate, magical and accurate, in an astrological sort of way.

Following are the haikus received by the various Töads. Much internet appreciation sent to our personal Haikuist Lisa, as well as all the Haiku Guys.

in the dressing room
try out different positions
stretch out the tight spots

wandering tribesman
synched [sic] up on a wide system
wider ancestors

on our lily pads
we don’t see the feathered roots
in the murky lake

burn the bill of rights
we will make it anyway
with duct tape and wire

Three cheers for the fucking haiku guys!!! They made our first night at the world maker faire as memorable as burning an original copy of the Bill of Rights!

Dawn of the Töad King – Official Movie Trailer

Did you know that we have been working on a short surrealistic art film that chronicles the history of the Meädow? We are proud to present the first official trailer for the first film in the trilogy – The Dawn of the Töad King.

We are always looking for acting and filmaking talent. We are especially interested in finding a video editor that shares our artistic vision and would like to contribute their skills. If you enjoy editing videos, please use the contact form and let us know you exist.

Plot Summary:

Once upon a time, the land that is now Töad Meädow was ruled by an evil pig king and his degenerate ape henchmen. In the midst of his spiritual quest to reach enlightenment, the Töad King found the meadow, and knew that it must be liberated for the benefit of his spiritual children.

A great war was fought between the Töads and the pig king. Ultimately, the Töads prevailed and Töad Meädow was born.
