What Is Art of the Day: When Rebekah Poulain tried to transfer her daughter’s drawing of a penguin to a private online folder, she inadvertently uploaded it to a public folder containing entries in a national art contest held by the prestigious Saatchi Gallery in London.
A year later she received an unexpected e-mail: 7-year-old Leilah beat out 1,700 applicants to win a coveted spot on the gallery’s wall. “It seems it all happened because I’m such an idiot,” Rebekah said. “I didn’t know what I was doing when I uploaded Leilah’s picture.”
The contemporary art gallery, which exhibits pieces by Damien Hirst and other Young British Artists, was opened in 1985 by Saatchi & Saatchi co-founder Charles Saatchi.
"Does this mean I’m a famous artist?," asked Leilah, who can’t wait to go to London to see her art.
