Who Will Take the Taxidermy Challenge at ArtCon’s Mounted?

by Anne Bothwell 24 May 2013 10:27 AM

Here’s a look at the artists who will be contributing a piece of work based on a taxidermy mounting board to Art Con’s Mounted event.


You might recall that Art Conspiracy‘s annual seed event, “Mounted,” is right around the corner, on June 8 at Life in Deep Ellum.

Now comes word of the artists who’ve accepted the challenge – and a taxidermy mounting board – to create a piece of work for the auction that will raise money to fund Art Conspiracy main event later this fall.  Artists range from screen printers to robot builders, and part of the fun will be seeing how they incorporate the mounting board into their work.

Here’s who’s playing this year:mountedvertical 2013
