Wednesday, November 6th, Brian Rust (a sculptor and fellow finalist from Augusta, GA) and I had some time to kill before our meeting at 1 p.m. in Lexington. We decided to visit Shakertown which is about a 40 minute drive south of Lexington

Tuesday, November 5 and Wednesday November 6 were the 2 days scheduled for the Eco-Art finalists to visit Lexington and look at potential sites. After a brief meeting with Jim Clark (President and CEO of LexArts), Nathan Zamarron (Community Arts Manager for LexArts) took myself and Brian Rust (a sculptor from Augusta, GA) on a tour of prospective sites.
The day ended with a reception at the Mayor's house where we got to see an amazing art collection and meet some artists from Brazil who are creating a 60' high by 50' mural downtown. We were treated to a dinner, a night's stay at Gratz Park Inn and breakfast the next morning.
I was able to experience a side of Lexington that I'd not seen before and was quite happy for the tour and the hospitality.

I haven't posted in a while because we have been BUSY, BUSY, BUSY !!! The most important news is that I have been chosen as 1 of 5 finalists to be paid $2,000.00 to develop a site-specific proposal for Lexington's Eco Art Program. There were 118 applicants to the open national call that were screened to a 'short list' of 16 before selecting the 5 finalist. I'll post more as information becomes available.

Friday, I was scheduled to deliver and install a bench that had been sold from the garden shop at Yew Dell Gardens to a couple who lived in Berea.
There's lots to check out - I totally recommend a day trip to Indian Fort in Berea. I know that I'll be back...
