I would like to thank everyone who helped make yesterday one of the greatest birthdays I have ever had. My third critique went fairly well in preparation for my senior thesis show. "Wood Whispers" was not only honored by receiving the Student's Choice award for Sculpture, but was also purchased to be apart of the Student Union's Permanent Collection. What a great birthday surprise! Congratulations to all my friends and peers who were also awarded and chosen to be apart of the 2011 Art Expo. Great show everyone!
