1st place award for “A Man of the New World Order: 1-20-2017” at Art Noir


A Man of the New World Order: 1-20-2017 by Billy Hedel (showing frame) (mixed media 20×24″, $ 395)

Billy Hedel’s hanging wall-sculpture was chosen by the juror of the Arts Council’s Art Noir exhibit as the best in the show and awarded ‘him’ (Billy and the ‘Man’) the first place prize this past Friday Night.  This unusual and different piece, one of a new series Billy is making during his art sabbatical, is actually a return to social commentary art that he has made at different points in his life.  (Think, for example, his body of work about Hurricane Katrina.)

‘A Man’ generated a lot of buzz during the Art Noir run, which was a singularly strong show – from the art itself, to the selection, and installation.  Billy thanks everyone who was involved, peoples’ comments, the award, and the cash prize.

Although Art Noir closed Friday, the Arts Council is displaying this piece and its two companions for the week.  They are located at 318 Main Street (812/422-2111) and open Tuesday – Friday from 10 am to 4 pm.
