PRLog - Nov. 29, 2011 - EUREKA SPRINGS, Ark. -- The book is the author's personal journey through Hurricane Katrina in 2005. This is the first non-fiction book about life inside the dank Superdome during the storm and the levee failures. This ground-breaking work has been described as "moving" by actor John Lithgow. The book reflects on issues of racism, privilege, group think, and how powerful the emotion of fear is in controlling our lives. The book cover is a photo taken by the author looking down at the Superdome from the nearby Hyatt Regency Hotel where he was smuggled to after 5 harrowing days.
Obviously the author is trying to get wider exposure for his memoir by inviting any professional artist, film maker, or producer who works in any medium to simply use the front cover of the book or the book itself in their art (collage, painting, stage, TV, sculpture, mosaic, performance art, etc.) and he will send 1-5 postage paid complementary signed copies of his work to the artist.
The artist must email the author with full snail mail address along with where the piece will be displayed and/or performed, how many copies are needed for their work, and by what date the piece will be displayed. The artist was inspired to solicit this novel approach to artists after viewing a stunning piece of work at the new Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas.
Further questions or inquiries may be directed to the email address below. The author, Paul Harris wishes to sincerely give thanks to all the artists of the world for how they help educate the world.
