From Duluth to The Moon!

Once Upon a Childhood by Kelly Schamberger won an award at the Art Renewal Center 16th Salon in New York and then was selected to be included in the Lunar Codex and was sent to The Moon on Odysseus!

From Kelly Schamberger: “If I had not had an expertly-done photo of this painting, it would not have won the ARC award… and would not be etched in a metal plate sitting ON THE MOON. Your ability to take such a beautiful photo of a very dark, very reflective background was absolutely critical to this extended success.” Thanks Kelly!
