Become Accessioned into a Museum’s Permanent Collection - #210 from The List of Ways to Live Forever (Accessioned VMFA)

My face appears within existing artworks of the Virginia Museum of Fine Art’s  Permanent Collection.  Upon closer inspection, the viewer bears witness to my presence throughout history. I am immortalized as part of a collection that will presumably be preserved for centuries to come. “Heather Zirkonia” (my VMFA museum staff alter-ego) gave a brief 35mm slide presentation of 40 such images during the InLight 2015 outdoor event curated by 1708 Gallery on the grounds of the VMFA in Richmond, VA.
