Bad Artist Awards
Bad Artist Award? Would you want it?
Bad Artist Award?! How's that for an award? The mission statement of the bad artist award is: "We grant the bad artist award to promising and accomplished artists as a wabi-sabi embrace of the impeccably timed winds through perfectly brushed hair."

Would you want it? There is actually some level of distinction in that, right? It's not like your friend or partner is telling you you're a bad artist. I guess they could submit you to this award if they wanted to sneak the point across, but then it's not an award for bad art, like the Museum of Bad Art is.
Read here about Wabi Sabi...it's all about embracing the imperfection, so in that case who wouldn't want it. Or, it could be a little "go break a leg" kind of thing to artists who don't want to be jinxed with awesome artist awards, then where is there to go from there?
The award will be granted by a new organization starting in 2018, so right now it's super secret, so I can't tell you any more than that. But, I can give you some clues and a heads up about it, if you want to email me.
Also, if you would be offended with an award like this, I'd love to hear about it...comment OK?! No matter how much you think it might hurt.
