Yep... I have to do a little shameless strutting around. Forgive me. This is just too good to be true...
It's official! The above bangle (from my BioBangle series) is now part of the permanent collection of the Racine Art Museum. If you're not familiar with RAM, it is (in their words) "one of North America's most significant contemporary craft museums, with more than 4,000 objects in the permanent collection."
Now, I take no credit for getting my piece accepted as part of their collection. I owe it all to the fine women at Polymer Art Archive. There is currently a wonderful summery of all the hard and amazing work that Elise Winters, Rachel Carren, Nancy Travers and others at the Polymer Art Archive have accomplished. And believe me, I am just a drop in the bucket of fine folks who are included in this new polymer addition at RAM. (Hmmm... that metaphor seems... wrong somehow.)
So... excuse me for walking on air today. I promise I'll come back to ground soon, and offer some more inspirational places to explore on these interwebs. Until then... I'm flying in the clouds like... well... like a friggin' raven!
