 A Day with The "Bydeeman"

Location:  Carver Dance Studio

Austin Youth will share an artistic experience painting a colorful mural with The “Bydeeman”.  Brian Joseph called "Bydeeman" because he paints and shares the philosophy of the fictitious Bydee People that he created with his first painting on September 9, 1986.  Joseph and his Bydee community strive to promote peace, love and happiness.  He pointed out that the Bydee people have no faces because of the human tendency to emphasize looks. “You don’t have to be good looking to be happy,” Joseph says.
