On Exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art!


Ok, so it isn't exactly on par with being shown in New York or Paris, but our local Museum of Contemporary Art held a photo competition of sorts to run in conjunction with an exhibit they are showing called "Why We Look at Animals" - so they got together with the city newspaper and held a photo contest for residents of the city to submit their favorite animal photo they had taken.  I received notice last week that my entry was one of 100 that were chosen by the museum curator and newspaper photo editor to be part of the exhibit!  They held a reception and opening ceremony this afternoon at the museum that we were able to attend:



Museum goers looking at my photo:


And the proud papa posing next to our kitten Mischa, gorgeous as always, looking quite smashing in her black frame and white border:


No money involved, no prizes, but very, very cool to have one of my photos hanging in a real museum, even if they are all amateur photos from a fun contest through a newspaper.  She has a wall tag and everything!  Uber cool. :)

Now who is the kitten behind the "happy look at at me I'm so proud" fellow on the photo? :)
Nice knowing someone liked your photo skills quite enought to put one of your photos on a museum.
Congrats.
