I am very honored to announce my piece "Wild Child" has been selected by the employees of EMC Insurance for their corporate collection as part of their Art EMC Project.
"Art EMC, a project initiated by the EMC Art Committee in 2005, directly supports the visual arts and involves EMC employees in the art selection process. Iowa artists submit artwork for consideration of inclusion in our virtual art gallery and purchase as part of EMC’s permanent art collection. EMC employees take part in the selection process by voting through an online preference poll. "
The Art EMC 2015 Unveiling reception took place on Monday, November 2nd at 1:00 PM at the Des Moines location. Bruce G Kelly, CEO of EMC gave a brief speech describing Art EMC's mission to directly support the arts.
The Iowa Artists Purchase Exhibition will run from November 2nd until November 13th. See all of EMC's corporate art collection at their Virtual Art Gallery here.
