And the winner is . . .
Barbara Sajor Gray
for her story “Pedro.”
On behalf of the Bernard A. Zuckerman Museum of Art, thank you to all the writers in the “Pedro: Design-Your-Own-Book” contest. We appreciate the time and imagination they used to put words to the work of artist Athos Menaboni. Our judge, children’s book author Laurel Snyder, was fascinated and entertained by the stories and said, “In choosing a winner, I looked for text that went beyond the pictures on the page. I looked for transformation.”
Barbara’s story of Pedro will be published in a limited edition and available for viewing at the museum. We congratulate Barbara and hope you all enjoy her story of Pedro. The winning story will soon be available for viewing on this site or come see it in print at the new Zuckerman Museum of Art Grand Opening in October!
