Juror Honors from Made@MCAD

After its long delayed trip home my little Loom Chair is recieving some small acclaim-
It was selected by Juror Clara Kim, the senior curator of visual arts at the Walker Art Center, as one of five pieces out of the total 75 in the show to receive juror honors, and here I was just excited to be picked out out the 350+ entries to be in the show at all.

Here’s a photo of it looking spiffy in the MCAD Gallery-
