I am super happy to share that the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the first and oldest art museum in the U.S., founded in 1805, has acquired five prints from my series "Maria", these works will be accessioned into the museum’s permanent collection. I am very grateful for the trust of Brittany Webb and Juan Omar Rodriguez and of course to The Print Center for giving us artists this annual opportunity. And just to add an odd note, a couple of weeks ago I wrote in my planner the name of this museum for a summer visit since I was intrigued about a painting from Peale: The Artist in His Museum. I have been thinking about "wunderkammers" a lot lately. This totally keeps me going.
