We were really pleased to hear that a small package was delivered to the gallery via the EYA sales office. I opened the package and with great surprise, the benefactor sent us a gift! They want the world to support artdc.org so they sent us a great shiny silver piggy bank! Kim from EYA was very excited by the Benefactor’s idea. She loved the fact that they offered this kind of support and affirmation in small ways with big meanings. Personally, it had a great impact on us. Someone is willing to think about us and let us know that we’re doing something right.
We thought the bank looked so good in the gallery that we put in on a pedestal for display! Let’s hope the public get’s the point and supports us!
Maybe the monopoly money was a little prod at the Washington Post’s Reliable Source accusations of a connection with the collector. (scroll down to read their blurb about “The Collector’s Identity? It’s as Clear as Frosted Glass.”)
