jonny's benches at first night.





    
we headed down to the gallivan center last night to see the project that has been keeping my brother up til 4 am every night and forcing him to sleep on my couch because he is too exhausted to drive home. i knew he had been working on two benches, but i didn't know quite what to expect and we were blown away by what we saw. jon is an architecture student at the U and one of the best they've got, because these two benches were chosen over all the other entries from students that were submitted to be featured at the gallivan center for first night. he designed and created them using 600 empty beer bottles and lots of blood, sweat and tears. truly, they are so impressive. if any of you are hitting up first night this weekend, be sure to check them out. so proud of my very talented brother.
