Breaking the museum barrier

THIS JUST IN! Sky Pads 34 has been accepted into the Midwest Museum of American Art 44th Elkhart Juried Regional Exhibition.

I previously had applied 4 times, was accepted twice and rejected twice. My goal was to break the tie on the “accepted” side. Mission accomplished.

The next project is way more difficult–to wit: win part of the $26,000 in prizes awarded at this exhibit. The ideal prize would be their purchase award, which would put Sky Pads in the museum’s permanent collection. All I can say at this point is, well…there’s a first time for everything. If you have connections to the gods of art prizes please put in a word for me!

    Congratulations, Alli! This is my favorite Sky Pads ’cause I love anything in the purple hue. I’m praying and thinking positive that my favorite gets to the museum’s permanent collection!
