AAME announces 2007 People's Choice Award for Art in Public Places competition

December 01, 2007

Arts Alliance Mountain Empire (AAME) is pleased to announce that the People's Choice award for the 2007-2008 outdoor sculpture competition is "Coke is Fun II" by Marvin Tadlock, professor of art at Virginia Intermont College in Bristol.

Eight pieces, chosen from 26 entries from six states, have been placed at sites in and around downtown Bristol for a one-year exhibit. Tadlock's award-winning stainless steel sculpture is in front of Theatre Bristol on the Tennessee side of State Street near Fifth Street.

"I think this is a first for me. I've won several awards over the years, but never a People's Choice! So, I'm flattered!" Tadlock says.
