A small Mid-Western town arts council has $20,000 to award to a local artist with an “under-represented American voice.”  Should they choose the modestly-talented son of a local politician to shore up government support, or the self-taught but challenged artist who creates religious figures out of trash?  This raucous comedy explores how gossip, politics and opinions of art can decide who is the most deserving.
