CALL for ENTRIES: Thunder at CAM
SALTY BUT SWEET
I grew up with a single father from age 3 to 13, and it was a culinary adventure. One of my fondest memories is of weekend-long motorcycle trips when I was around 8. We’d climb on and hit the road. I would freeze in the morning early-morning air. My father’s solution? We’d stop at every other golden arches we could find for french fries and hot fudge sundaes. This next Call is a whole different way to celebrate two-wheeled freedom.
Check out this Call for Entries for Thunder — Motorcycles and Art from the Coos Art Museum. The entry fee is as little as $15 dollars for this incredibly unique opportunity to show a wide variety of media — even jewelry! Take a look…
