I take issues with imposed or even implied limits… even when I shouldn’t.  And, thanks to my food obsession, you won’t be surprised to learn that my weight has gone rather up and not so much down over the years.  I can’t just love art and food and food-themed art.  Oh no, I’d even love to wear art and food (like the dress in this Sarah Illenberger photo pictured left).  Sign me up.  Now.  If you refuse to accept limits, this call is a chance to stretch your talents to include public art AND sculpture.  Give it a shot…

Check out this Call for Entries from the Town of Chapel Hill, North Carolina for Sculpture Visions.  There is no entry fee, and this exhibit is open to all artists.  All artists whose artwork is accepted receive an honorium.  Here’s your chance to make a PUBLIC art statement…
