Second, the NW Ohio Modern Quilt Guild is hosting this fun ArtSpark Challenge and they'd love some participation from Columbus Guild members! Here is the basic overview
The idea behind this challenge is to visit your local art museum and find a piece of art that inspires you. Any piece! A sculpture, a piece of glass, an oil painting, anything! Classic, baroque, modern, contemporary - your choice! You game? 
Winners will be picked randomly from the Flickr pools. Enter as many pictures as you would like but only 1 picture/quilt per person is eligible to win. What do you have to do to win?
- By July 1st, 11:59 PM EST upload a photo to the Flickr Art Spark WIP group- By August 1st, 11:59 PM EST upload a photo to the Flickr Art Spark Finished Projects group
