This update just in although I think the folks at MINA knew this last week!
Famous artist Wyland will NOT be coming to the CNMI. You can read more about this potential project gone bust here.
According to MINA we were not chosen as one of the locations leading up to the Olympics where Wyland will paint his 100th mural. He apparently offered to come and do a sculpture following the games but who knows.
Let the record show that nearly 80% of respondents felt the idea of Wyland coming here was a good idea!
In an email to me Mr. Sayon, the head honcho at MINA, said they were going to look at the concept of using local artist! We certainly have a few that could do a wonderful job so why not! I'll keep you posted!
