I came across this some time ago:
A call for artists in Arlington is hard to pass up at this point. I live only a few blocks away from the Arlington Center for the Arts, and I have photos from around the area. Ever since I saw it, I have been trying to interpret the theme- Elements. It's so broad, it's all the more challenging to come up with something that feels original and unique. Atleast that's what I was thinking until this afternoon.
I attended a marketing boot camp today, and learned that what I think is not unique, is actually completely my own. The work I produce comes from within, only I can make it. My only challenge is to ensure it's not redundant. And even that is a criticism I am creating for myself. Without going into too much detail about the boot camp, suffice to say, I came away feeling like everything around me is an opportunity. Not just in a business sense, but in a sense of building value with my community.
So I am now going to submit 3 works of art to this Call for Artists, whatever the interpretation.
I will leave you with this image for today, taken at Menotomy Rocks Park (it is not one of my submissions).
