Art-A-Whirl 2017 at High Monkey

Written By: High Monkey
Posted: 5/24/2017

Despite the the rain that persisted throughout the Art-A-Whirl weekend festivities, High Monkey had a fantastic open house.

The Tiny Home from Tiny Green Cabins was a hit! Besides being a great place to stay dry, Art-A-Whirl goers were amazed by the small space--the tiny home actually saw more than 800 visitors over the weekend! 

The Ponytail Posse was a must-see for Waterbury guests. The Posse did robot demos of their lovely robot, Stacy, and visitors were invited to drive the robot. Robot drivers even earned their very own and very official Minnesota "Robot Drivers License", which won the hearts of many young future engineers. Towards the end of the long day, the ladies even started a dance party and taught High Monkey's digital marketing intern Miranda how to do the Cotton Eyed Joe!

Overall, High Monkey's first Art-A-Whirl weekend experience was a hit and we're already planning for next year. In case you missed it, here are some pictures from Saturday:
