Spine-Taneous, I salute you!
It took a lot of work, cooperation, and drive to pull it off, but Spine-Taneous happened -and happened in a BIG WAY! Here are some images from the evening.
Our third floor venue had a stellar view of downtown Davenport and the Skybridge.
A shot of Katy Kiley's and Dr. Jay Kitzman's collaboration.
Terry Rathje's and Dr. Ann Marie Campagna's collaboration.
Molly Conrad sang several songs that were inspired by her collaboration between her, Emma Harmon, and Amber Bollman.
Palmer College Of Chiropractic has a large 'spine' that they use for various publicity endeavors. Adam McDonald, Dr. Martin Stine, and a few other masochistic souls 'volunteered' to hang the spine. Some lights were added to the interior to add a really nice sense of drama to the spine. It became one of the cool/interesting focal points of the event!
Dean Kugler's triptych of contortionists greeted everyone as they entered the event.
The collaborating artist and chiropractors were: Katy Kiley and Dr. Jay Kitzman; Eileen Eitrheim, Allison Filley, Dr. Karen Smith; Paul Herrera and Dr. Kevin Wabelhorst; Dr. Richard Boyer & Linda Kelty; Dr. Tara Pratt, Taylor Bennett, and Steve Banks (with a special thanks to Tami Schmidt!); Paul Herrera and Dr. Julie Johnson (Paul was part of two collaborations!); Jacki Olson and Dr. Martin Stine; Leonard Metallo Jr and Dr. Martin Stine (Dr. Stine was also part of two collaborations); Terry Rathje and Dr. Ann Marie Campagna; Dawn Wolford-Metallo and Dr. Tyler Johnson; Dean Kugler; Emily Christenson and Dr. Traci Nelson; Eileen Eitrheim and Dr. Karen Smith (They worked on two pieces too!); Amber Bollman, Emma Harmon, and Molly Conrad; Ariel Beverly and Alfie Sundquist; Adam McDonald and Hannah Lingafelter,
Thank you to Dr. Julie Johnson for all of her work finding and coordinating Chiropractors and student Chiropractors for the project.
A big Thanks goes out to Dr. Ron Boesch, Dr. Julie Johnson, and Aramark Catering for making the evening a success! -and Adam McDonald and crew for hauling and installing that Spine-A-Saurus Rex.
A Super-Duper-Ruper thanks has to go out to Eileen Eitrheim for her vision, her bulldog tenacity, and her boundless enthusiasm. Without Eileen, Spine-Taneous would not have happened.
And a final thanks goes out to everyone who braved the snow and the cold to come out and attend Spine-Taneous.
