Long story short, you get to be in a museum AND you get art. Here’s how:
Choose a work from the pictures on either of my portfolio pages, here on my website, that speaks to you, whispers to you, yells to you, grabs you by the collar.
Write something, word limit 50-200 words. It needs to be somewhat about the art work you chose. It could be a small story, a small poem, some thoughts, some musings, a letter, a riff. A footnote. Some lines.
You can do two submissions, if you like. Your work can be anonymous if you prefer.
If your writing is selected, your words and the corresponding work will be displayed together in a solo show at The Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum. We get a whole room to ourselves. The show is titled The Footnote Chronicles. We’re going to be great together.
The Footnote Chronicles will run from September 9, 2016 to January 8, 2017.
The Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum really knows how to put on a party on opening night. Ours will be 6-10pm September 9, 2016.
Each selected writer will receive a signed, small, original print of the art work they wrote about. I’ve already mailed 7 prints.
Submit your writing by email.
The cut off date for submission is June 30, 2016.
Here’s a picture I recently finished. Robert Frost wrote about it, but you can too:
