Just turned in my application for the wonderful Artist Residency Contemporary Art ( And Parenthood) at the Bemis Center in Omaha, NE. Celebrating with a Chipotle burrito and my hero of the hour, my husband.
The Bemis Center for Contemporary Art has my utmost respect and enthusiasm for their decision to provide such a GREAT opportunity to artist/parents. No matter the outcome for me, I hail their new thematic residency as ground breaking and a breath of fresh air. In a world which seems to make you choose between a family and a life of making, the Bemis makes this home[maker] feel a bit more bright eyed.
Now go make something.
