[From The Archives] Josh Hailey’s I Love Jackson Retrospective (12.2.10)
have you ever shot so many photos that you’ve overlooked a crap ton of them?
no? well, i have LoL
in an effort to correct that, it’s time to, once again, take a look through the archives!
so, back in the last month of 2010, Josh Hailey, a well known Jackson Creative, was getting ready to pack up his ole kit bag and move to the always sunny west coast
and what do you do when you’re getting ready to move? that’s right, you throw a going away party! which is just what josh did.
except, this going away party included the entire city of jackson, live music, food, drinks, and kick ass art!
so let’s warm up the flux-capacitor and hop in the TARDIS and re-live a really great night!
and remember, this isn’t Sparta…
it’s mr. josh hailey himself as the night starts off at the Arts Center of Mississippi.
this was only josh’s first outfit of the night. heh, he would change outfits many times before the night was over.
