In Print and Burpee staff are proud to be collaborating on Word of Art 3.

Here are some things you need to know:
The exhibition will be downstairs in the Riverview Room and Classroom 1, giving us plenty of space to place art and also stand, sit, mingle, and appreciate the program. Patrons will be directed to either the stairs or elevator by Burpee staff. There are several free parking lots across Main Street, and after 5 pm, in the Discovery Center lot, see map below.

Drop-off of art will be Thursday, March 9, during the museum hours of 10 am to 5 pm. I intend to be there from 1-5 to help. The front desk will have a place for you to put your art if you stop by before 1 pm. If Thursday is not good for you, please contact me prior and we will make arrangements.


You may take your art with you following the program or return Saturday, March 11, between 10 am and 1 pm to remove your piece(s). If you are unable to attend both the reception and Saturday’s pick-up, please contact me prior and we will make arrangements.

The museum receives a 20% commission on all art sold. The buyer pays you, you pay the museum. If your art is available for sale, please let me know how much and I will add it to your card.

As part of Word of Art, authors are asked to read their Words and artists are invited to speak briefly about why they selected the Words and how they inspired their Art. If you are unable to speak during the program, let me know and someone will read in your absence.

Word of Art 3 books will be available for pre-order soon. When the first print sells out, we will take orders towards the next run. We will also have books from both Word of Art, and Word of Art 2 for sale, quantities are limited.

I will be sending an invitation for you to print and distribute or forward to your friends, family, and art-loving masses. 🙂

The Word of Art 3 exhibition, reception, and book release on March 10, 2017, is FREE and OPEN to the PUBLIC.
Refreshments will be served.
