Oil-tank art - some proposals that didn't make the cut

Since our package on the proposal to paint art on some South Portland oil tanks ran a couple weeks back (see "It's Not About the Art," by Jeff Inglis, and "Words Over Pictures," by Ken Greenleaf, both in the September 5 issue), we've heard from a few artists whose proposals weren't selected

Were we interested in seeing what they had proposed? You bet, and we're guessing you are too.

Here is the first installment of what I hope will be a series of posts showing the people of Maine what proposals weren't selected.

So first, a plea: If you are an artist who submitted an entry to the "Art All Around" competition, please send me your designs. I'll get them online and we can start a great discussion.(Commenter Sharky is right - I should have asked you e-mail them to me at
