We are adding new products right now.
Calling all MAFA artists. We are looking for more up to date images from your work. Please send them to Bryan Snuffer and we will get them up on the site. We also need image from the 2008 Tunover if you have them.
Midwest Air Force Artist,
Our turnover this year will be at the National Museum of the Air Force at Wright Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio on October 22, 2010, instead of Washington, DC this year. The Air Force will be sending you additional information later.
Your work is to be sent to the Pritzker Military Library (preferably unframed) to be juried by June 9, 2010. PML‘s address will be supplied later. Our reception at PML is tentatively scheduled for July 16. 2010. There are three possibilities for exhibit because Pritzker Military Library is moving to a new location and the move date is TBD:
1) Opens at current PML in mid-July and entire exhibit is at current PML, ends mid-October.
2) Opens at current PML in mid-July goes dark while PML moves, goes on walls in new PML and stays up until mid-October.
3) Opens at new PML in mid-July and entire exhibit is at new PML, ends mid-October.
All three possibilities involve a mid-July opening. We are shooting for opening the week of July 12th with a possible reception on July 16th. . Another reception possibility is an opening reception on September 24th in the new PML. This coincides with the Air Force’s birthday (which is September 18th). All three possibilities involve ending mid-October.
The art needs a place to gather before being juried, PML is investigating the possibility of housing the art for 10-14 days. This will give it a chance to arrive and be juried. Once it is juried, it can be sent to the framer. After framing it will come back to PML ready to be hung.
This gives us three months to wrap up our art work (or maybe even start). Everyone in the group is used to deadlines and I think three months is a pretty good deadline.
