NESSIE’S NEXT CHAPTER pt.2
nessie project – art prize 2009
Well, the whole ebay thing was a bit of a wash… how do you try to sell a ’100 long, 5 piece, stylized loch ness monster? What the ebay thing did do was to generate a great deal of interest in private parties coming forward to find a way to keep her at the zoo. We hope to have some more information to report in regards to her status soon. Thanks again to Bert and the crew at the zoo for your support and patience and to the people who have shown interest in keeping her in the city she was created for. The GRAM is hosting a casual forum on Friday, the 8th of January… so stop on by if you find yourselves downtown around 7:00pm.

Although the zoo will be closing December 7th for the winter, you can still make donations to John Ball Zoo by visiting their website.
