Third Place Award
"The Grand and The Turtle" received the 3rd place prize on Wed., June 27 at the Richard and Jane Manoogian Mackinac Art Museum on Mackinac Island. This mixed-media collage pays homage to the Grand Hotel and the Island. Native legend says that a magic song awakened the big turtle called Mishini-Makinak to rise from the watery depths to create the island known today as Mackinac. That same mysterious, magical song is embedded in the Grand Hotel and draws visitors from all point of the compass to its spacious front porch, signature geraniums, and unique Victorian decor. My artwork honors the history and magic of this unique place.
This exhibit will be on display to the public from May 11 to closing on October 7. From Oct. 8- October 31 it will be open to tour groups during various dates. The Manoogian Mackinac Art Museum is house at the Indian Dormitory.
