Yippee! Awaiting contact from the City of Mason, but this is too exciting to hold in. I've been selected by committee to create a public sculpture for them.
If you're curious you can watch the recommendation yourself on city council replay (http://www.mason.mi.us/3videostation.htm ~ Click on meeting June, 17th, 2013 then forward to 45:43min. mark).
Or, in short, it was an easy, unanimous decision. woo-hoo!
