Breeziway Design Wins Kentucky Derby Judge's Choice Award

June 22, 2011

I have just received the following press release from the Kentucky Derby Museum regarding our award (Judge's Choice) for the 2011 annual hat contest. The museum has created a slide presentation of the 20 hats chosen for display at the museum this year. I am awed by the talent represented and thrilled to be a part of this group and display.

2011 Kentucky Derby Museum Hat Contest Winners Announcement

For Immediate Release (Louisville, KY: June 22, 2011) Congratulations to one of this year’s Kentucky Derby Museum Hat Contest winners, Sandra Nagel Whitworth of West Bloomfield, MI. The museum received over 50 hat entries and of those entries only 20 hats were selected for display.

Whitworth’s hat was designed by her and is a blue headband/hat with feathers and yellow accents.

Hats are essential to the Kentucky Derby experience. Choosing the right hat for the occasion is as important as betting on the right horse. On Derby day fancy hats, themed hats and goofy hats unite to uphold the long standing tradition. The Derby Museum glorifies this tradition by bringing the hat experience right to our visitors. Our Derby Hat Contest winners display a broad range of designer and novelty men and women’s hats showcasing trending styles.

A photo of Whitworth’s hat is attached to this release. Whitworth’s hat is one of 20 currently on display in the It’s My Derby exhibit and will stay there until June, 2012.

For more information about our hat contest and/or our exhibit contact Gwendolyn Carnighan at the telephone number or email address below.

In a way, for an art-lover like myself, decorating our home is quite easy. I just please myself mostly, with my poor husband going along with most of my choices. I am always collecting beautiful things, like handicraft decorative pieces, little sculptures and hangings.
And I simply hang lovely paintings in all our rooms. Not all are originals of course, as who can afford many of those.
I order many prints on canvas from who have a vast collection of images from Western art, that you can choose to make economically-priced prints like this Interior in Aubergines, by Henri Matisse,, from there.
I can choose the frames as well and my orders are delivered quickly to my home.
