29: Consensus

general agreement or concord; majority of opinion

We dug deep and slept little during the selection process.  We kept true to the intention of the project.  To be open to all.  To be fair.  To show a huge diversity of art mediums and styles.  To represent a balanced cross section of the art community.  To encourage new ideas and experiments.  To learn about the artists and to embrace and celebrate their stories.

The problem was that this really didn’t make the job any easier.  Everyone was unique.  Everyone was talented.  Everyone had a story.  It was a very tough job, but it had to be done.

To all the extraordinary artists who applied to be challengers please know that we are extremely gracious.  You have lifted our sprits and made our little School very proud.  Proud to have sparked your curiosity.  Proud to have inspired your imagination.  And proud to be part of your community.
