I’ve been selected by an Italian organization called International Talent Support (ITS) as 1 of 2 American Finalists out of submissions from 65 counties. We will be FLOWN TO TRIESTE, ITALY! this July for an exhibition, award ceremony, and a chance to win the grand prize of 10,000 Euros. This is sponsored by MINI (those little cars). The other American Finalist, Elizabeth Eiten, and I will be flying into Venice on July 8th – I’m hoping that one of you on my list has family or friends there who may want to walk us around the city? Let me know if you have thoughts. I haven’t been there since I was 15 years old when I took these photos of my sister Rachel.
