Maura McGurk and other artists discuss their views of the judging of the Lincoln portrait contest sponsored by the Slater Museum in Norwich, CT.

The Slater has defended itself against charges by the artists and others that it acted in an unethical manner by changing the contest rules, and notifying the participating artists of the change only when they arrived on the deadline with their completed portraits in hand.
