Something to Crow About!

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!

Mary Kaye said...

This IS something to crow about! And you deserve to be included in their exhibit. I live relatively close to Racine, south of the border LOL - I'm going to have to go up there and look around that museum.

I'm with Martha...strutt away! Huge congratulations to you, Melanie. Your work has just evolved beautifully and become really rich with 'you-ness' :) You so earned this, honey!

Oh my! You gals are waaay too sweet! My head is about 10 sizes too big today. (Heh... a little productions work will fix that!)

Seriously, I did nothing... it was the tireless work of Elise, Rachel and Nancy, among others, who made - and are continuing to make - this happen. I never realized just how much work was involved in a project such as this. Phew!

And this is just the beginning!! There are other such projects in the works... polymer is finally growing up!

Again, my humble thanks to all of you!

Now... back to the clouds I go!
