The Irish Street Musician: Celtic Kilroy

2013 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

My 2013 Artprize entry theme is “Art For A Cause” thus my main goal is to secure funds and increase awareness of a unique organization dedicated to helping lost teenagers discovers their God given talents and purpose. The name of organization is Eagle Village located in Hersey Michigan. www.eaglevillage.org I modeled my human statue character from the street buskers I observed while in Ireland in 2004. As a human statue, I thoroughly enjoy interacting with my audience in a number of ways. I typically remain motionless until a kind bystander places a donation in my tall bronze vase. Upon coming to life, my human statue actually plays one of six instruments he may be holding at the time. The $ inserted into the bronzed vase that helps my human statue come to life, will be donated to Eagle Village. If my art piece is chosen as one of the top 10 winners, Eagle Village will receive 50% of the cash prize award. Please vote for The Irish Street Musician – Celtic Kilroy number 54421
