Gabrielle dropped off her 16x20 portfolio, resume and artist bio, at the MOMA with an optimistic attitude. She knew hundreds of other students would be applying for this tremendously generous scholarship. The turn around for the jurors to review the work was less than a day. There was a very slim probability that her artwork would be one of seven students chosen by the Dedalus Foundation to have a gallery in Industry City, Sunset Park, NYC. She frantically called her fellow classmates on the following day wondering if they could pick her work up for her. She was beyond delighted to hear that her work could not be picked up because it was chosen for the exhibition!
