I thought I would share this article with you all. After reading it post your thoughts. http://www.artrenewal.org/articles/2...incompoop1.asp

As for me it made my blood boil. It also reminded me of a grant that I applied for when I was in collage and was rejected for. That alone was not bad for many others were rejected also. The killer was that the grant was awarded to a artists for a show that consisted of 4 unstretched, unframed canvases painted a single color each and a plexiglass cube in the center of the room filled with junk.

This was a $30,000 Grant that would have paid for my total tuition bill.

But instead of I or one of my equally talented (if not more talented then I) classmates getting the award some no talent hack got the award. It is now almost 20 years later and I am still paying on the remainder of my student loans. (on a artist's income I was forced to deferrer them for some years)

No bitterness here (well maybe just a little)
