What is Word of Art?

What is Word of Art?

I participated in a similar author/artist partnership a few years back. They did a book, which ours is based on, and the paintings were hung as part of the Art in Your Eye art festival in Batavia, but I wanted MORE.

With Word of Art 1 and 2, I’d say–without bias–that we have achieved MORE.

Our first two years we partnered with Emmanuel Lutheran Church, hosting the exhibition in their gallery. It was perfect for displaying the Word and Art. In our third year, we were contacted by Burpee Museum of Natural History to be included as part of their 75th Anniversary celebration.

Do you have ANY IDEA how exciting this is for ME?! I grew up with Burpee! Burpee is not only an historical staple of the Rockford region, but it’s also nationally renowned as one of the top museums in the country! And my little author/artist collaboration is partnered with them?! I am a proud mama.

Then we thought, as long as we’re mixing things up with a new venue, how about we add DIMENSION?! You know, Word of Art 3D! We have 41 participants from 22 cities and 5 states. In three meager years, Word of Art has conquered the Midwest!

After months of planning, wording, and arting, Word of Art 3 is upon us.
And really, I’m almost finished printing…
