In honor of our 16th anniversary, Rosin Preservation is excited to announce a collaboration with Accidentally Wes Anderson. Like AWA, we at Rosin Preservation are big fans of the aesthetic championed by filmmaker Wes Anderson. Our recent visit to the Philbrook x AWA exhibit inspired us to share this love for unique places and quirky designs that inspire wonder, curiosity, and adventure. 

Do you have a favorite spot in the Heartland that showcases that distinctive AWA sense of place? We are defining “Heartland” as locations within one (long) day’s drive from KC. Preference will be given to images that feature historic/patinaed buildings and places, pre or post-rehab.  The ideal image is symmetrical, colorful, and joyfully quirky.

The exhibition Thank You for Exploring x Heartland will open at the Rosin Preservation HQ in July 2022. Our founder Elizabeth Rosin and Wally & Amanda Koval of Accidentally Wes Anderson will select the images for display.

To submit a photo, tag it #AWAHeartland on Instagram or email it to Submission deadline: May 31, 2022 at 8:00 am CT.
