Michelle contacted me in September 2016, for permission to be included in her upcoming “October Manhole Madness” Blog Project. Would I say OK? Are you kidding? Her topic is a Manhole Artist’s Dream. I wondered how she would cover the topic for a total of 31 days! Well, I have been amazed and dazed by the variety and the artistry in all of her presentations.

On October 23, 2016 Michelle Ward introduced me on her blog:”Cover Girl”Bobbi Mastrangelo: http://michelleward.typepad.com/michelleward/2016/10/cover-girl-bobbi-mastrangelo.html.She covered many aspects of my art world and artistry including: art post cards, sculpture relief works and how they are created, embossed metal pieces, giclee prints and fiber art.

Here is a quote from Michelle Ward’s Blog: “Bobbi Mastrangelo is a mixed media artist like us – creating with several mediums in many sizes. Bobbi makes one-of-a-kind sculptures, with a long list of distinguished collectors, and she creates affordable prints and reliefs too. Incorporating paper casting, printmaking, sculpture, and paint – she is inventive, creative, and an environmental activist.

Her career began as an elementary school teacher, but she eventually found her way to art-making and has been at it for thirty-seven years. Bobbi’s site is very extensive and there is a lot to see. Visit her site and her blog at www.BobbiMastrangelo.com.”

PS  Michelle Ward invites you to visit the whole month of October Manhole Madness. She and all the artists presented would welcome your comments. You just may catch the bug and be “Mad about Manhole Covers” in all forms!

Each year, Orange County and the nation observe Hispanic Heritage Month by celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of Americans whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.

The observation began in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week and was expanded in 1988 by President Ronald Reagan to the 30-day period from September 15 to October 15.

The date of September 15 was chosen because it’s the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.

Mexico and Chile also celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. October 12, celebrated as Columbus Day or El Día de la Raza, also falls within Hispanic Heritage Month.
