Day 1 Spring Break in Girdwood, Alaska

There will be a delay this morning in the opening of the Mountain due to the snow load. The Alyeska Ski Report is announcing 3' feet of un-skied snow at the top for a total of 585 inches so far this season! Yeah Baby, that's right it's Spring Break in ALASKA!



I’m only posting this because of it’s timely topic… I didn’t get a letter of rejection, this one was e-mailed to me yesterday. My first "Rejection E-mail" from the Fairbanks Airport project I applied for on January 4. Somehow an e-mail doesn't seem as bad, not as tangible as a letter coming in the mail with all of the anxiety of opening and reading the bad news. Getting a "Rejection E-mail" makes it easy to just hit delete! BTW the rejection e-mail didn’t throw me into a funk –how could it with the start of Spring Break and all of this FRESH snow?!

Dear Artist,

Thank you for your application and your interest in the Fairbanks Airport project. The jury viewed many exciting and innovative applications, and found the online and in-person CaFE process easy even though it was a first for ASCA.

I am sorry to inform you that the Public Art Selection Committee did not choose your application for further development. I hope you will continue to visit our website and for future artist opportunity announcements.

Sincerely, Andrea Noble

I got one of these from the Town of Chapel Hill. They had a call for artists for a year long rotating exhibit. I now get emails showing what the exhibit du jour is and I would sure like to meet those tasteless judges! I think they just picked their friends or people they felt sorry for! You are so right, punch that delete button!
