When we were down at ArtPrize we came across one entry that was art in action in the sense that they were making art during the week. This is not all that uncommon for ArtPrize. A small group of the works the artists will actually do or complete the works during the competition. Makes it even more interesting for the people down there. Now ArtPrize visitors can see the process of creating art along with seeing the final product of the efforts. This particular group of artists were creating things out of copper.
So now the photos are more than just photos of a woman working on copper, they are the seeds of a story that the kids will hopefully remember every time they see them. And who knows, maybe I might just continue on with the story and the photos will become the basis of the illustrations for the book. Our copper elf might just become a famous childrens book character in the end.
