2016 Max Ehrmann Poetry Competition Awards Ceremony
The Awards Ceremony was hosted by St. Mary-of-the-Woods College in Rooney Library Thursday, April 28, 2016.
This year's poetry theme was based on a line from Max Ehrmann's best known poem, Desiderata, "You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars you have a right to be here".
Max held to a philosophy of inclusion, for people of any background, religious persuasion, or even personality. We asked that people submitting works to this year's competition consider ideas of belonging and /or not belonging.
The competition was open to individuals of all ages living, working or attending school in Clay, Parke, Putnam, Sullivan, Vermillion, and Vigo Counties.
The competition was judged by Indiana poet, Lisa Kwong, who read some of her own poetry during the event. The winning poems were read; many by the authors of the poems. There were prizes awarded to the elementary, middle school, high school and over 18 years of age winners.
Sculpture Collection App Launch
Soon Art Spaces will launch an app to make the collection more widely accessible and provide viewers with easy ways to connect with Art Spaces. Stay tuned for more info on date of the launch celebration.
Latest Sculpture Dedication, "On the Wings of Flight"
The impact of one individual's life on others can be profound. Such was the case of Edwin M. Schmidt (1910 - 2002) whose impression on the hearts of two longtime Terre Haute residents, William and Judith Brett, led them to honor his life with this Art Spaces sculpture.
The public dedication was November 20th with the sculpture artist Obie Simonis of Boston, Mass. in attendance.
The stainless steel sculpture rises elegantly from a grassy hill just north of the Holly Arboretum in Terre Haute's popular east side Deming Park, where thousands of pedestrians, motorists, bicyclists and runners will view it each week.
