My work is in a museum! If my dreams come true, it’s the first of more to come (don’t know how or when, but it’s certainly a dream of mine).
Here’s how it all happened:
I got an email from a stranger in August. She told me of how she had received an artist-in-residence position at the de Young Museum, and she wanted to use a photo of mine as part of her inspiration wall. Would I mind? (Would I mind?!) I promptly gave her permission and my full name for a photo credit.
Today was the reception for her work, and I finally got to meet her in person after exchanging a few friendly emails. What a lovely person and a talented artist! And what an honor to have inspired her.
Shots of my photo in use and Corinne’s artist reception can be seen here.
It was a very exciting afternoon.
PS. If you’re in the SF area, you can check it out for yourself. Corinne’s residency is through January 4.
