  2. Tattfoo rejected by Workshop Residence


    Thank you for your submission to the Workshop Residence Annual Competition. This was our first residency competition and we were thrilled with the scope and variety of proposals. It certainly was not an easy decision for our jury and there was much deliberation. We regret to inform you that your proposal was not selected as the winner of the competition.

    Please know that we will keep proposals from this competition on file for future consideration. We will have a residency competition next year and hope you will consider applying again, perhaps with a newly crafted idea or the same proposal, refined. The 2014 registry will remain public on our website.

    We also hope that, if you opted into the online registry, you found it to be an interesting resource and perhaps you even received some feedback on your idea. If you have any questions or feedback for us, we would love to hear it. 

    Thank you again for your interest in Workshop and for your submission to our first residency competition. We appreciate you being a part of our residency program and are grateful you shared your idea.

    Best wishes,

    Braden Weeks Earp

  3. Tattfoo rejected by Arts & Healing Network

    Dear Tattfoo,

    Thank you for nominating yourself for the 2014 AHN Awards. We had many strong applicants this year, and after careful deliberation, we are sorry to say that we are not able to offer you an AHN Award at this time. 

    We, here at the Arts & Healing Network, truly appreciated learning about the wonderful work you do in the world. I was personally very moved by your passion and commitment to using art to heal. I guess we’ll see this letter on your “iheartrejectionletters” site, which lends a surreal quality to the crafting of this missive, you can be sure!

    If you would like to learn more about this year’s awardees, we will be announcing them in a few weeks on our web site at http://www.artheals.org/projects/ahn_award.html

    I am including a list at the end of this email of funding resources for healing artists. I hope that it is of help to you as you navigate your path as a healing artist in the world.

    We hope that the Arts & Healing Network can be a source of inspiration for you in your journey as a healing artist. If you have any questions or trouble finding what you are looking for, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

  4. Tattfoo rejected by Seattle Office of Arts and Culture

    Tattfoo Tan:

    Thank you for responding to our call for artists for the Waterfront Seattle Public Piers. The call received a great response, with applications from over 340 artists from 38 US states and 23 nations. A panel of five professionals in the arts and design fields selected a shortlist of five artists for interviews. After meeting with the finalists, the panel recommended the selection of Ann Hamilton for the Public Piers commission. A link to the announcement is here .

    The city of Seattle will issue two calls for the waterfront this summer, one focused on play and another focused on the Coast Salish presence and history on the Seattle waterfront. I hope you will follow our progress and consider applying for future commissions. All calls will be posted on the Office of Arts and Culture website, at this URL . That page also includes a link you can use to join our public art mailing list.

    Best regards,

    Eric Fredericksen

    Dear Tattfoo,

    Thank you for submitting an application to the Alameda Creek Watershed public art project. We were pleased to see your portfolio in the mix for consideration.

Unfortunately, your application was not selected for advancement.

    We have many projects coming down the pipeline this year, and I will keep my eye out for anything that may be a good fit for your work. In the meantime, please keep me updated on your shows and projects.

    Tattfoo Tan:

    Many thanks for taking part in the Imagine Art Here Public Art Engagement RFQ. We enjoyed reviewing the 134 submissions. There were many creative approaches, and the selection committee had a difficult time narrowing the pool to 4 finalists. Although your work didn’t make it to the final round, we hope to offer further public art opportunities in Fairfax County and that you’ll consider applying for a future call.

    Thank you very much again for your submission.

  8. Tattfoo Rejected by Socrates Sculpture Park

    Dear Tattfoo,

    On behalf of The Architectural League, Socrates Sculpture Park, and the Folly Jury, we want to thank you for your proposal for Folly.

    We received over 170 impressive applications for this program and are delighted that the topic and opportunity were compelling enough to inspire this response. Because we could only select a single project, the selection process was challenging for all involved. Although your work was not selected for Folly, we encourage you to attend the League’s and Socrates’ openings and stay involved in our upcoming programming.

    We look forward to staying in touch for upcoming architectural projects.

    Many thanks and very best,
