If you happen to be in the neighborhood, or even just passing through, my show starts on March 24th and my opening is from 6-8 PM. It should be up for about 2 weeks. It's in Fort Wayne Indiana at the Fine Arts building of IPFW.
There is a lot of other great work in the show that my friends have worked very hard on as well. If you do stop by let us know what you think!
Your project is amazing! I wish I had the skill/patience to be able to make something like that.

Maybe I should get back on the short bus.
They're not *all* home runs...even the best hitters only get on base 1 in 3... ;)
CONGRATS again, c-punk's watching out for his job... ;)
Today is opening day, folks, I'm certain it'll be a HUGE hit! :)
I am sure more people would have stopped to look and get in it if the weather was better or it was inside the building like I asked for it to be. The worst thing about art school is the politics... I had no help from faculty in making or building the whole thing because they "refused to talk about it." They just said FINE and OKAY to anything I said about it all semester in critiques. They wouldn't help me place it in the show either. So I learned how to put in work orders myself and have it delivered just where I wanted it with the schools forklift! Then I had them pick it up at the end of the night so that it wouldn't get stolen or vandalized from sitting out.
If you do want to check it out I have it here at home and anyone who wants to see it is welcome to come and sit in it! I hope to have it lots of other shows as I am continuing to work on parts of it. I want to paint a sign with the name of it on the side of the track. I never got to set up the stairs either because of the weather, so I hope to set it up in a public place and let people have pictures taken in it. A fund raiser would be perfect, maybe for the local zoo here. I just need to start talking to the right people. :)
Just send me a PM if you do want to see it. Here is the link to the new picture page on here tonight before it goes up on the main site tomorrow. http://omega.ipfw.edu/~marschand/picturepage13/tigerpagethirteen.htm *** Edited 3/27/2006 1:22:42 AM UTC by BeccaRaptor***
My teachers didn't even look at it. Well, ok ONE did and he was really excited about it. None of the other 6 in the group did. I just wonder how they are going to grade a project they never looked at. Oh well. I made this for myself anyways, not for a teacher's approval. And I had fun and learned a lot, and that's what matters.
My mom said she has never seen me smile as much as I did that night!
