It has been a busy, eventful summer. My internship at the Haggerty Museum of Art in Milwaukee has been going wonderfully; I really have learned a lot and am excited to continue. The director of the museum, Wally Mason, has offered me a part time position, and I am happy to say that I have accepted and will continue in my place once school resumes.

Today was my first day working as staff. The above image by Abe Morell was featured in the most current exhibit at the museum and was removed today as we begin rotation. I am quite excited to see the new exhibits, opening next Wednesday, August 25, 2010.

On August 6th, I participated in the second Emerging Visual Artist Project exhibit, Art for Art's Sake, in Rockford IL and was awarded Best of Show. There are plenty of talented artists coming out thanks to the EVAP and it was a pleasure to have met them; it was all around a successful and enjoyable evening. The works are on display at Kryptonite Music Lounge until August 25, 2010.
