“Painting Contest:  MO real

Twin billboard images relate the story of a painting contest recorded in Socrates’ day by Pliny the Elder: 

A painting of grapes by one artist was so realistic that birds flew down and pecked at it. Then the first artist reached to draw back a drape covering the second artist’s work… only to find that the drape itself was painted !  And so, the second artist was declared the winner. 

The hand-dyed drape pictured makes a case for textile arts as a medium for painting.”
