I am happy to announce that my art was displayed at Times Square in NYC on June 18th! This is a shot that Ineta McParland took of Avatara as it made it’s rotation on the LCD video banner. While I did not win the “Grand Prize,” I am immensely satisfied with the opportunity I had to share my art with thousands of people across the continent, gaining greater exposure for my art, and the chance to act as an emissary for the visionary art movement!

“Over the past three months, tens of thousands of artists participated in a new way to discover talent and expose it to the world. The result: on June 18th, some of the most iconic billboards in Times Square were transformed into an immense display of art. Tens of thousands of artists joined this international phenomenon, contributing works that received over 2 million page views during the course of the competition.” — Art Takes Times Square

Thanks to everyone who offered their support during the competition! It was fun! Although you can’t see it in this picture, my name appeared below the image of Avatara, as did every artist whose work was displayed on the LCD. 🙂
