Re: Vero Beach Museum Press Release
I was confused about where this exhibition was going to take place at first -after all I lost an hour someplace around here last night- but it certainly looks like a cool location for sculpture. Are you planning to visit Merida during the exhibition?

Re: Vero Beach Museum Press Release
Congratulations! Sounds like a good excuse for a visit there. I got the prospectus for that show too, but in the end didn't submit anything. Let us know how it works out for you down the road. It would be wonderful if the piece sold down there.
