Beginning to have press

We are begginning to get some publicity. We recently had another website publish our image. Art Not Oil, a part of Rising Tide UK, added our image and web address. Once the sculpture is painted black, now that the cement has cured, we will take a few more photos and send out a press release. Of course we really don't need much official press instead we just need word of e-mail.

Paint it black.

At the end of July and beginning of August we will paint the sculpture black. We waited so that the stucco could cure for 6 weeks. Even though it was only grey at graduation and super Saturday we got a lot of feedback in our comment book that we left there. We also had over 200 flyers taken, they were out everytime I stopped by!

The comments ranged the gambit from people who were really excited and moved by the piece to some who were angered by the sculpture. Over fifty people commented, though most people didn't sign their name. In general it was very supportive. We did get a few criticisms worth noting and responding to.
