Be careful sometimes you get what you ask for!
Good problems to have!
For the past several months I have been applying for public art events and projects. After a good 20 rejections I received an a acceptance phone call and email of a show in 6/8 and 6/9 Pittsburgh PA. Great news and finally the validation as I have to admit I was getting frustrated with the rejections and took a brake from applying the past few weeks.
However the problem is that I have a solo show the day before that weekend on 6/7. This obviously puts me at a situation where I would have to fly out sometime right after my show (including the art). This of course is the small problem the biggest problem is getting out there!
At this point I was expecting a trip anywhere so a plane ticket is not in the budget. But that doesn’t matter because I need to find away to get to the show as I feel the exposure, experience, and event can help further my career.
After brainstorming all weekend I have no idea how to make this work financially. I found a place that I could stay and could potentially send my art to early (if I use different art from my solo show) I can’t end up rejecting my first acceptance. None the less its good news and a victory!!!
