One of the most creative couples in the city, Randy and Shannon Bacon are the operators of Randy Bacon Gallery in downtown Springfield.
Randy and Shannon are the organizers behind 7 Billion Ones, an artistic movement centered on telling the story of people from all over the world, one story at a time. How did we meet?
Of all the crazy places, we first met at a wedding I was shooting for a mutual friend of ours. It gets extra dirty under there.
I agree with Shannon. You have to learn what is really important for you as an individual, as well as a couple. I need time to be alone, paint, and know I am still an individual without Randy. This did take me some time to learn though, and I am almost 50!
I really enjoy our community, and the beautiful, nice people in Springfield.Welcome Chris Swaim to the Weather Watch 12 team
Just a truly great group of wonderful hearts live here, and that is really, really hard to find in many parts of the country. We have so many good friendships here and that is priceless. Springfield and the area have been so incredibly supportive of Shannon and I as we have ventured through the years with our photography and film business and projects.
We are truly thankful! Well, without a doubt, the launch and growth of our nonprofit story movement, 7 Billion Ones, is so exciting and important! There is no bigger thrill than this.
