I entered a, Percent for Art call from the Montana Arts Council several months ago. So many months ago that when I got the "Congratulations! Your work has been selected" I was hoping that I hadn't shipped it off to some show or already sold it. The good news is I hadn't! #6 will be heading for Montana Tech's new Natural Resources Center in Butte this Fall when the building is completed. I started this piece over a year ago during a residency at the Teton Art Lab in Jackson Wyoming. I remember sacrificing one of the shirts I brought with me to wear so I could have just the right grey to finish the piece up. All the thrift stores were already closed and I just had to have another shade of grey,so the shirt was included. Hopefully the sacrifice will not be in vain and the artwork will inspire the students who wander the halls of the Natural Resources Center. Thank you to the Montana Arts Council and the Percent for Art program for making it possible to have original art in public buildings.
