Flagship Olympia

March 3, 2009
Charcoal Pencil
This sketch is preparatory work for an exhibit I was juried into at the Sullivan Museum at Norwich University. They sent out an open call for VT artists to pick a piece from their permanent collection and make a response piece. I found this blue china plate commemorating Dewey's victory at Manila Bay in 1898. There is still this level of amazement that Norwich opened there collection up to interpretation as Myself and some of the other artists I know in the exhibit plan to use this opportunity to make a political statement of some kind. The exhibit opens at the end of May and runs through the summer. We shall see what I make over the next couple of weeks.
