Crock Cock!

It's chickens, chickens everywhere in the studio. We are finishing up some chicks for the Bloomington Playwright's upcoming play "Chicks With Dicks II
Battle With Cannibal Sluts in Outer Space!"
For each production, they invite an artist to create window art promoting the play. I'm intrigued by the concept of space chickens, and am eagerly awaiting the installation at the end of the month.
The chicks created especially for the play are waiting to be revealed, but in the mean time, here's a cocky guy that was finished earlier.

The Indiana State Museum TV has a name!

The Mosaic TV made especially for the 2009 Indiana State Museum Art Fair finally has a name. A big "Thank You" to Joanna Hahn and the staff at the ISM for all their help with the display and collection of tv name suggestions. Here are the results as posted on the Indiana State Museum's blog site.

The results are in and the Indiana Art Fair Signature Artist piece has a name. It was tough for this year’s artist to choose among the over 400 suggestions left by Indiana Art Fair visitors in February. But there was one title that 11 contestants all agreed would make a terrific name: “Tile-A-Vision.” Congrats to all of the following contestants who recommended the title: Rebecca of Plainfield; Jeb Smithwick of Indianapolis; Jeff Marsh; Greg Mac of Indianapolis; Brian Blackburn of Decatur, Illinois; Christopher Lyons of Indianapolis; Betty Cockron of Indianapolis; Jacob Crouch of Indianapolis; KyleeAnn Wheeler of Indianapolis; Adam Hon of Marion; and Mary Jane Schnake of Danville. And thank you to all who helped to give this piece of art a unique name!
Here are the “runner-ups” that were also personal favorites of the artist:
“Archaic Mosaic” by Vicki Bohlsen of Whiteland, Indiana
“Don’t Touch That Tile!” by Greg Dale of Defiance, Ohio
“Ode to Analog” by Sheila Walsh of Toledo, Ohio
“Boob Tube Redux” by Jane Runge Darlage of Indianapolis
