If you attended the I AM IN PRINT Five Year Anniversary Celebration last March, then you know our big news… If not, drum roll please–

Word of Art 3D has been invited by the Burpee Museum of Natural History to participate in their 75th Anniversary celebration!

Festivities for Burpee will cover several months of features and activities and the Word of Art 3D reception will be held late winter/early spring of 2017.

We are so excited about this opportunity to further expand our creative collabortion. The Burpee Museum of Natural History is located at 737 North Main Street Rockford, IL, on the banks of the Rock River along the newly renovated Riverwalk. We hope you will check out Burpee, it’s histories, exhibits, and all it has to offer. It is the museum’s goal to “inspire all people to engage in a lifetime of discovery and learning about the natural world, through preservation and interpretation.” We encourage you to use this statement as inspiration for your submissions.

We will be collecting stories this fall, stay tuned for details and deadlines! Also, a reminder that this year we will be open to dimensional art. Ceramics, mosaics, jewelry, etc…

Congratulations to past participants who assisted in making this opportunity happen!

(I am so excited!)

Thank you,
