“Everyday Monuments” A special installation at the Smithsonian American Art Museum On the occasion of the exhibition Jean Shin: Common Threads, May 1 – July 26, 2009 New York artist Jean Shin is collecting thousands of old trophies from residents living in Washington D.C. and the surrounding area for an upcoming art installation at the Smithsonian American Art Museum entitled, “Everyday Monuments.” Each donated trophy will be transformed by altering its figure’s pose to resemble the movements of everyday tasks and then incorporated into a large‐scale art installation. If you’d like to participate in this unique art project by donating trophies, please complete the reverse side of this sheet and return it, along with your trophies, to the location listed below. Trophies may also be submitted directly to the artist by contacting her at email@example.com.

The artist is solely interested in trophies with figurines. Signs of moderate wear and tear are acceptable. If you prefer that a name plate does no appear in the final installation, please remove it from the trophy before delivery. Be sure to write your name in permanent marker on the underside of the trophy. Trophies may be delivered daily between the hours of 11:30 a.m. and 7 p.m. to: Smithsonian American Art Museum Luce Foundation Center Information Desk, 3rd Floor 8th and F Streets, NW Washington, D.C.
