Anna House Benefit Piece

This is a shadowbox that I made to benefit the Belmont Child Care Association's Anna House. Anna House is a child care center for the children of the backstretch workers in Belmont Park. Every year they have a benefit gala in Saratoga Springs with a silent auction of donated items. I was honored to be asked to participate and had fun making this little stable scene full of Saratoga references. The outside of the box is covered in the names of horse, jockeys and trainers from the different races duing the 2011 meet.  The box has a working clock and is captioned "It's not who you are that counts, it's how you treat your horse."
