Local Artist will have work featured on CBS' Criminal Minds

Aug 01, 2017 10:19AM ● Published by Mandy Carter

The Naples Art Association, or NAA, is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and advancing education, interest, and participation in the visual arts in Southwest Florida – is thrilled to announce that NAA member artist, Leigh Herndon’s work will be featured on CBS’ Criminal Minds, which will air on October 4 and be set in Naples, Florida.
 “As the area’s leading arts organization, 
Criminal Minds’ set designers contacted us when looking for local artwork to feature in this season’s opening show. We connected them with several of our member artists and they selected several pieces of Leigh’s work for a police station and several homes on set, which is exciting!” said Aimee Schlehr, Naples Art Association CEO/executive director. 
“I am a proud member of the NAA, so having my work selected, in part, because I am a member artist is just a bonus.  It’s also refreshing to know that a show as popular as 
Criminal Minds takes the time to utilize local artwork in keeping with its designated locale for its set designs,” said Herndon.  “I had a lot of fun working with the Criminal Minds team in selection of my work and can’t wait to see how they incorporate it into the show.”
