Once again I have been selected by the Mount Pleasant Culture, Arts & Pride Commission to have my art displayed at the Town Hall.
The reception was held on August 22nd with Mayor Haynie. All artists got to take photos with him and feel like a celebrity for some moments of fame. Being this the 4th time I participate in the program, I can say I feel pretty welcome and it was fun to see Mr. Mayor and be received by a warm hug and a “we know you” joke.
I told them I was going to claim the first-floor wall as a permanent display and after some good laugh Nicole Harvey (the special events manager) said this time I was sent to the third floor instead. After all, it is a rotation of art and artists.
I am truly grateful and honored to have been so well received in my new home town. All these achievements mean SO much to me, as an artist, as a newcomer, as a foreigner.
Bless your heart 😉
