The 'Eyes On America Portrait Project' is an art initiative celebrating the beauty, uniqueness, and depth of American diversity. For EOA, I am creating portraits of various Americans from all walks of life, each containing a repeated design pattern infused into the composition. Designs are based on patterns found in nature and symbolize the strength of the universal human condition despite the country's current culture of 'religious' hate.
Once the series is complete, I will be exhibiting the portraits in a venue (or venues) TBA where 50% of ALL proceeds will go directly to the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) - www.adl.org
If YOU would like to be a part of the series, you can either pose for me in my studio and/or provide me with a detailed photo, which I can also take. All participants will receive a signed reproduction of their portrait. Those wishing to purchase their original portrait may do so but must agree, in writing, to loan their portrait to a venue that will exhibit the series. (The work will be accompanied by a label stating, "On Loan from the Private Collection of Your Name.") The purpose of this agreement is to maintain the integrity of the series by keeping it in tact.
If you are interested in being a part of EOA, please call Maxine Nodel at: 914-987-5118 or email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
