Bobbi Mastrangelo Received The Women in the Arts Award from the DAR 10/5/15

Saturday, October 10th, 2015

The Daughters of the American Revolution is an organization with a deeply rich history while also being truly relevant in today’s world. More than 930,000 women have joined the organization since it was founded close to 125 years ago. They became members to honor their heritage as well as make a difference in their communities across the country and the world.

A while ago, Ellen Gordon, Registrar for The Lake Wales Chapter of the DAR, nominated me for the Women in the Arts Recognition Award.  This National Award is designed to recognize worthy women in the community for outstanding achievement in the non-performance arts.

The DAR Women in the Arts Award

The criteria was: innovative design work, featured exhibitions, publications and technique development.  The recipient is expected to have contributed to her artistic field in an outstanding manner beyond mastery of technique.  Ellen was especially interested in the art that called for environmental action: “When the People Care.”

The packet we sent off to the National Chairman included Ellen’s Nomination, My Artist Statement, ten large photos of art works, Letters of Recommendation from Artsy Shark Founder  and WUCF TV Video Content Producer.

On October 5, 2015, at The Lake Wales Chapter Meeting, I was presented with the Award. My presentation included two videos of TV Interviews about my “Manhole Art.”

The audience chuckled when they heard the name of the grass roots environmental Adopt-A-Spot Group I founded: CLEAN (Committee for Litter Elimination And Neatness). 

They laughed out loud when they discovered that I was on the Moscow Website entitled: “Sewers of the World Unite!” The DAR Audience was very receptive and interactive.

I am very Honored to be a recipient of a National Art Award from The DAR, an organization which promotes historic preservation, education and patriotism.
