Voting has begun!
This morning my Chiro’s office let me know that my Catfish “Trapped” is featured in the Life section of today’s paper! YAHOO!
So here’s the scoop:
The Catch-A-Catfish art, environmental, education and tourism project was created to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Rock Island Clean & Beautiful.
More than 30 of the area’s top artists submitted drawings for selection by sponsors and many of the nearly 5-foot catfish have been on display in front of businesses, in lobby areas and/or at not-for-profit organizations since Memorial Day.
On Aug. 21, in conjunction with the weekend activities of the Xstream Cleanup, a Catch-A-Catfish auction will take place on the Great River Plaza in downtown Rock Island. The event will run from noon to 8 p.m.
My catfish is waaaay on the bottom of the page, and there’s only one picture of him. So, for those of you searching for the Rock Island Clean & Beautiful Catch-A-Catfish project, I give you the full view of my catfish “Trapped”, when it was on display in Davenport. Also, have a look at the painting in progress (the whole Catfish Category)! Unfortunately, the image shown in the paper and on the voting page does not display the most important details of my painting, the belly!
I’m asking you to vote. Yep, I sure am! VOTE VOTE VOTE! And if you like mine, vote for MINE! I’d like that even better! And tell your friends to vote, and tell your friends to tell their friends to vote.
