In the fall of 2011, I was notified by the Missouri Arts Council that I was to be commissioned to make the awards which would be presented to the 2012 MAC Award winners in February, 2012.
This has been the highest honor I have ever received. I'm still trying to deal with the idea of actually being an artist. And here I was being recognized by THE state organization for the Arts, and being asked to make awards for 5 of the most prestigious honors in the Missouri Art Community.
Here are the photographs of the five dichroic and irridized glass plates I designed for the event.
The exceptional photography was done by the amazing Don Casper, in St. Louis Missouri. Thank you, Don.
