    Art Painter Boris Brodsky's Biography


    Boris Brodsky
    1937

    Boris Brodsky


    Boris Brodsky has always had an admiration for the art of painting, especially involving both the creative process and the development of the works themselves. Brodsky is a self-taught artist, with guided training by renowned Peruvian painters such as Alberto Davila and J. Camino and 2 years of art covering coloring, painting and printing at the University of California, School of Architecture. Brodsky’s strength builds on the essence of projection balance, symmetry, harmony, and especially color, which he has mastered, applied and expressed in his unique artistic creations.

    Boris has devoted time to study, investigate and research elements of nature and has blended expressions of his art via forms, textures and color. Brodsky interprets and gives birth to abstract, unique and subjective creations of several types, and has mastered several tendencies of abstract expressionism, by elaborating forms and textures, and then giving them life by applying color through colorimetric skills. In monochromatic presentations, or with art presented in a contrasting polychromatic approach, Brodsky injects a personal touch. When it comes to texture and finishing techniques, he brings out great visual tact, in terms of smoothness, roughness or special effects.

    Certain elements of nature and history, including the cosmos have tremendously impacted Brodsky’s work. Each of these series has a different design concept and meaning, with a unique story or historical messages. Amid the series or styles in his different art creations include:

    a. Monoliths, which are forms using a version of pseudo statues, generally made out of carved stones, expressing strength and power, with a tendency to become elements of worship for the natives. Brodsky starts this series using the founders of the Incan Empire: Mancco Capac and his wife Mamma Occllo, emerging from Lake TitiKaka, who established the city of Cuzco, naming it the capital of the empire.

    b. Cosmos Series, presenting different versions of the firmament's stars, satellites, planets, in several contexts.

    c. Regular Cubism, with his beautiful interpretation of it, and a form that Brodsky generates

    d. Prismatic Cubism, a clean-cut geometric version of Cubism.

    e. Abstract Flowers, in great color combinations, giving them a sense of realism, with special textured effects.

    f. Geometrical form Abstracts, a series in which Boris creates original shapes, and fills them with vibrant and harmonious shades of color.

    g. Irregular form Abstracts, where he blends images, into curious elements of creative forms, that he then gives special meaning, with peculiar and harmonic color expressions.

    h. Story Tellers, another unique series, by which Boris leads viewers through a world of interesting and captivating stories, fictional and real.

    His art is also about creating special textures and color, with his unique formulas, based on his expertise of more than 40 years in the textile printing industry.

    More about Boris Brodsky:
    Brodsky was born in Peru and currently resides in Miami, Florida, U.S.A. Brodsky attended one of the most prestigious universities in architecture, the University of California, Berkeley, where he mastered art courses, focusing on design and painting. Since 1960, he partially owned a Textile Printing Factory in Lima, Peru, where he gained much knowledge and experience in the field, which influenced his paintings. Working at the textile plant, he purchased state-of-the-art machinery at Reggiani, Bergamo, the northern part of Italy, where the best artists of the world gathered to bring together top art.

    Due to many years in printing industry and the art of painting, Brodsky gathered much experience and knowledge, which made it possible for him to manufacture some of his own exclusive colors, and to develop special techniques, procedures and applications in printing and painting. Being exposed to fashion and textile materials assisted in developing and painting the designs that were used in the fabrics he produced. Boris extracted his own special techniques and materials that allowed him to express the elements of nature and history, by the universe and the cosmos that he has admiration for.

    As gratitude for having had the opportunity to learn and evolve in the art of painting, and for being blessed with the ability and virtue to perform in this field, Boris enjoys passing on his knowledge, his techniques and his secrets to young entrepreneurs.

    Brodsky is influenced by:

    -Alberto Davila - Peru - Cubism

    Abstract Paintings from Artist Eileen Hickey


    Artist Eileen Hickey
    Like many artists, Eileen drew inspiration from the surrounding waters discovering the duality of the calm healing waters and its deadly, storming waves. Conflict, cognitive dissonance, and duality are reflected in Eileen's paintings which question and disrupt a viewer's typical understanding and experience of a painting. Eileen resolves the seeming disparity between Abstract Expressionism, Minimalism, and Pop cryptically: "I want to paint things that are seen but not seen."


    Artist Eileen Hickey
    Eileen Hickey, recently added to her list of achievements with her comedy shows and her “Hell Yeah” foundation. Comedy, Hickey’s second love, is a passion that evolved as a coping mechanism in response to her divorce. “I call them marriage years, like dog years. I was 25 when I got married and 3 years later I was 50! I’m really 35!” joked the NYC artist during her debut performance on the topic of marriage and divorce.



    Hickey wants to lighten the divorce burden that psychologically can cripple both men and women. She has launched a series of artistic endeavors to achieve her goal. “Hell Yeah!” her calling card, is the foundations name. The Hell Yeah foundation is a helpful resource for individuals that intend on getting married. It serves as a tool to keep people informed on their rights and provide insight on the nasty side of marriage that some see when going through a divorce.
    Artist Eileen Hickey
    You can find more about Hickey’s art and her comedy at www.eileenhickey-hulme.com and her Facebook page: Eileen’s Hickey-Hulme.

    U.S. Department of Arts and Culture Hosts "People's State of the Union" Events in 150 Communities Across the Country

    Following Obama's Speech, Thousands Gather to Share Stories, Inspiring Poetic Address Broadcast from New York City's Bowery Poetry Club


    New York, NY (January, 14, 2015) – Following President Obama’s State of the Union address on January 20, the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture (USDAC)* will host a week of events in schools, theaters and community centers across the country in which citizens will contribute their own stories to form the first-ever People’s State of the Union (PSOTU).

    At story circles convened in over 150 communities between January 23-30, participants will gather to share stories reflecting on the state of the union as experienced in their own lives and communities. As a way to augment the President’s annual speech, these stories will be collected and shared through an online portal, supplemented by commentary from the USDAC National Cabinet. Inspired by these stories, a group of award-winning poets will create and deliver a Poetic Address to the Nation, broadcast live from New York City’s Bowery Poetry Club on February 1, 2015. Contributing poets include: Margaret Randall, Patricia Smith, Bob Holman, Luis Rodriguez, E. Ethelbert Miller, Claudia Rankine, Joy Harjo, Eileen Myles, and many others.

    The People’s State of the Union is the first in a series of new civic rituals planned by the U.S. Department of Arts and Culture.

    WHAT: People’s State of the Union story circles and Poetic Address
    WHO: Hundreds of individuals and civic organizations, partial list below
    WHEN: Story circles: January 23-30, 2015
    Poetic Address: February 1, 2015, 6PM ET

    WHERE: Story circles: over 150 communities, partial list below;
    Poetic Address: Bowery Poetry Club, 308 Bowery, New York, NY
    Attend Event: http://psotu.bpt.me/
    Livestream: peoplesstateoftheunion.usdac.us
    Online Conversation: #PSOTU, #USDAC

    “We're holding these events across the country because we believe that democracy is a conversation, not a monologue,” said USDAC Chief Instigator Adam Horowitz. “Instead of a speech spoken by one, the Poetic Address is a work of art created by many.”

    USDAC Minister of Poetry and Endangered Language Protection Bob Holman, an award-winning writer and creator of Language Matters (soon to be broadcast on PBS), is leading creation of the collaborative address inspired by the stories.

    A small sampling of participating communities and organizations includes:

    United Caring Services Homeless Shelter (Evansville, IN)
    Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City (Overland Park, KS)
    Migrant Education Program (Salinas, CA)
    University of Nebraska Social Practice Coalition (Lincoln, NE)
    Bronx Music Heritage Center Lab (Bronx, NY)
    Wise Fool Circus (Peñasco, NM)

    “Coming out of a year as divisive as this past one,” Horowitz continued, “it is more important than ever that we forge new bonds of empathy by truly listening to one another’s stories.” Anyone who wants to take part but can’t attend a story circle is invited to submit a story online during the week of Jan. 23-30. please visit http://usdac.us/psotu

    ABOUT THE USDAC *The USDAC is the nation’s newest people-powered department, committed to harnessing the power of art and culture to cultivate empathy, equity, and social imagination. Launched in October, 2013 (and immediately attacked by Glenn Beck), the USDAC is a growing national action network of artists and cultural organizers, embodying the values, actions, and policies that could and should shape any agency representing the public interest in art and culture. This past summer, USDAC Cultural Agents hosted large-scale community “Imaginings” in eleven cities, bringing together more than 2,500 participants to envision their communities 20 years on, when “mission has been accomplished” for the department. The USDAC is not a government agency. Learn more at www.usdac.us.

    The Nasher Sculpture Center presents the first retrospective in more than 20 years of the renowned American sculptor, Melvin Edwards, including never-before exhibited works


    renowned American sculptor, Melvin Edwards



    DALLAS, Texas (October 20, 2014) – The Nasher Sculpture Center announces the exhibition Melvin Edwards: Five Decades, a retrospective of the renowned American sculptor, January 31-May10, 2015. Melvin Edwards’s career spans crucial periods of upheaval and change in American culture and society, and his sculpture provides a critical bridge between modernist techniques and materials and contemporary approaches to the art object. In 1988, New York Times critic Michael Brenson lauded Edwards as “one of the best American sculptors… [and] one of the least known.” Over the past five decades, Edwards has produced a remarkable body of work redefining the modernist tradition of welded sculpture.

    “Exhibiting the work of Melvin Edwards is a tremendous privilege for the Nasher,” says Director Jeremy Strick. “His expansive, decades-long sculptural practice in welded steel fuses vital Modernist traditions with deeply held personal and social convictions, and the results are uniquely powerful artistic responses to some of the most volatile and pivotal events of our times. In addition to its historical and political relevance, Edwards’s work also has important connections with the radical experimentation and international outlook of contemporary art, positioning him as an artist of rare versatility and reach.”

    renowned American sculptor, Melvin Edwards



    Melvin Edwards: Five Decades bears witness to Edwards’s profound commitment, from the very beginning of his career, to an art that is both abstract and deeply engaged with meaning and expression. A truly international artist well before the advent of today’s global art world, Edwards has brought his experiences of other cultures and languages, particularly those of Africa, into his work, to explore the varied ways that art can forge bonds of connection and kinship. He is best known for his Lynch Fragments, an ongoing series of small-scale reliefs begun in Los Angeles in the early 1960s and born out of the social and political turmoil of the civil rights movement. Incorporating tools and other familiar objects, such as chains, locks, and ax heads, Edwards’s Lynch Fragments are abstract yet evocative, summoning a range of artistic, cultural, and historical references.

    Melvin Edwards: Five Decades will feature a broad selection of Lynch Fragments, including early manifestations, which spoke to racial tensions and political and cultural struggles of the 1960s; Edwards’s return to the series in the early 1970s, during the Vietnam War; and a group from 1978 to the present, exploring memory, history, and African and African American culture.

    renowned American sculptor, Melvin Edwards



    Presenting a full range of Edwards’s achievements, Melvin Edwards: Five Decades – the first retrospective of his work in more than twenty years – will reveal that his career has extended far beyond the Lynch Fragments. Major large-scale sculptures of the 1960s, such as Chaino, The Lifted X, and August the Squared Fire, will be included, as well as his Rockers of the 1970s, which incorporate movement and, in some cases, sound.

    Melvin Edwards: Five Decades will also feature many works not seen since their creation, and in some cases never before exhibited. With the artist’s cooperation, the Nasher will recreate the groundbreaking 1970 exhibition of his barbed-wire sculptures originally shown at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Several large sculptures have been restored for the Nasher’s presentation, most notably the first Rocker, Homage to Coco, which was in the 1970 Whitney sculpture annual. Also on view will be sculptures Edwards has made in Senegal over the past decade, as well as a selection of maquettes and prototypes reflecting his long career in public sculpture, and rarely exhibited works on paper, including sketchbooks and collaborations with the artist’s late wife, the celebrated poet and performer Jayne Cortez.

    Thursday, June 19th 7pm
    Admission: $8 online; $10 at the door
    Visit www.citylore.org to purchase tickets.

    On Thursday June 19, the City Lore Gallery will be hosting a panel discussion, Spray Cans in the Gallery: The Legendary Fashion Moda & the Fun Gallery, about the transition of graffiti from the streets into the fine art world. Panelists include:

    Patti Astor of the Fun Gallery
    Jane Dixon, artist
    Stefan Eins of Fashion Moda
    Crash, graffiti writer


    Street art has long been a presence in New York City, never more prominent than during the “Golden Age of Graffiti” in the late 70’s and early 80’s. During this time period graffiti transitioned from an underground art form to the mainstream contemporary art world, while retaining its presence on the streets. At the cutting edge of this movement was Fashion Moda, Stefan Eins’ South Bronx outpost of the international art world that introduced neighborhood street artists, photographers and filmmakers to artists from downtown and Europe, creating an electrically exciting salon that profoundly influenced all who took part. Downtown, the scene was represented by Patty Astor, who hosted shows in her East Village storefront, the Fun Gallery, that brought together the artists, b-boys and MCs from uptown, the Bronx and East New York with the East Village culturati, the club scene and art and film world.

    Photographed during the ‘70s and early ‘80s, Chalfant and Cooper’s images of graffitied subway cars are among the major documents of American popular culture in the late twentieth century. Moving Murals presents the images in a wall to wall mosaic of over 850 muraled trains, creating an ultimate All City graffiti trainyard environment. Complimenting the murals: wallpapered photographs of the writers in their element.

    (BPRW) Michael Francis Gibson: Thoughts on Culture and Black History Month



    Michael Francis Gibson


    (BLACK PR WIRE) – Scholar and art critic Michael Francis Gibson has published over fifteen books, including essays on culture and the power of images. A fierce defender of racial equality and an arbiter for compassion in social and political relations, he is currently putting the finishing touches on a film script that will be of tremendous interest to friends of the African American community in the U.S. as well as the world at large. Gibson, who lives in Paris, co-wrote the script for Lech Majewski’s extraordinary film, The Mill and the Cross. Gibson also holds a lifetime membership in the NAACP and is the adoptive parent of two black children who enjoyed the benefit of growing up in France. You may hear Michael Gibson’s interview with Sally David at writersforgood.com.

    Majewski’s film The Mill and The Cross (2011; with Charlotte Rampling, Michael York, and Rutger Hauer http://www.themillandthecross.com) is a stunning recreation of Gibson’s book of the same title, an in-depth analysis of Bruegel’s inspired painting “The Way to Calvary.” The painting, according to Gibson, while relating the passion of Christ, also evokes the sort of scene that Bruegel himself too often witnessed: the execution of a Flemish Protestant by the militia of the King of Spain. The New York Times noted that Gibson’s book, a detailed analysis of a single painting, is "as readable and riveting as a first-rate spy thriller." http://www.nytimes.com/books/01/05/20/bib/010520.rv081854.html The book and the film, both available on Amazon, draw a vivid and detailed portrait of daily life in 16th century Europe and provide a forceful commentary on religious persecution. Read other books by Gibson http://www.the-university-of-levana-press.com. Contact him via writersforgood@gmail.com.

    Gibson’s wit and compassion are well represented in his new script, a lively treatment of a serious theme: the racism African Americans experienced in the U.S. before the 1960's and Martin Luther King's rise to prominence. All that Gibson will currently say about the script is that “It offers wonderful roles for black actors/actresses, including a phenomenal lead for a woman approximately 58 years of age—the genius who helps change everything for African Americans in the United States. And—there’s a happy ending you will love.” A film that combines Martin Luther King’s work, magic, and the end of racism—who can resist it? During Black History Month, contact Michael Francis Gibson via writersforgood@gmail.com.

    Welcome to the Gallery of Harlem


    Melvin B. Tolson’s Harlem Gallery, published in 1965 as the first book of a projected epic, drew impressive literary praise while it offered a demanding critical challenge. A Gallery of Harlem Portraits is Tolson’s first book-length collection of poems that will provide scholars and critics a rich insight into how Tolson’s literary picture evolved. The poems paint lively portraits of Harlem men and women of all colors and ways of life in the 1930s. The publication of this earliest of his manuscripts will help clarify Tolson’s achievement and surprise many of his readers with its readily accessible, warmly human poetic portraiture.

    Tell It with Pride: The 54th Massachusetts Regiment and Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Shaw Memorial.


    On view from September 15, 2013, through January 20, 2014, Tell It with Pride includes daguerreotype, tintype, and carte de visite portraits of the soldiers and the people who recruited, nursed, taught, and guided them, including Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, and Harriet Tubman. Letters, a recruiting poster, and the Medal of Honor awarded to the African American soldier whose actions first earned this distinction Sergeant William H. Carney are also displayed. Works by such 20th- and 21st-century artists as Lewis Hine, Richard Benson, Carrie Mae Weems, and William Earle Williams reflect the continuing importance of the 54th, the Battle of Fort Wagner, and the Shaw Memorial.

    The magisterial Shaw Memorial (1900) by Augustus Saint-Gaudens (1848–1907) is considered by many to be one of the finest examples of 19th-century American sculpture. This monument honors Colonel Robert Gould Shaw and the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, one of the first regiments of African American soldiers formed during the Civil War. The 54th fought in the Battle of Fort Wagner, South Carolina, on July 18, 1863, an event that has been documented and retold in many forms, including the popular movie Glory, released in 1989.

    The exhibition is organized by the National Gallery of Art, Washington. Following its debut at the Gallery, it will travel to the Massachusetts Historical Society in Boston, February 23 through May 26, 2014. The exhibition is made possible through the generous support of GRoW, an initiative of the Annenberg Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Trellis Fund.

    The Barnes Foundation presents Yinka Shonibare MBE: Magic Ladders January 25 through April 21, 2014

    Media preview Tuesday January 21, 2014

    The Barnes Foundation presents Yinka Shonibare MBE: Magic Ladders from January 25, 2014 through April 21, 2014. A British artist of Nigerian descent, Shonibare has exhibited extensively in the United States and Europe. His work alludes to European art and intellectual history and explores race, slavery, authenticity, and commerce. The works in the exhibition—approximately 15 sculptures, paintings, photographs, and a room installation—address themes of education, opportunity, and scientific and cultural discovery. This is the artist’s first major exhibition in Philadelphia, since his residency at the Fabric Workshop and Museum in 2004 and it includes a commission entitled Magic Ladders.

    “Several of Shonibare’s sculptures refer to the Enlightenment and its ideals of rationality and exploration,” says Judith F. Dolkart, deputy director of art and archival collections and Gund Family Chief Curator at the Barnes. “Shonibare shares Dr. Barnes's belief that education can improve individual lives, benefitting society as a whole. Barnes turned his pharmaceutical factory into a progressive and integrated workplace, where he devoted two hours of each eight-hour workday to discussions on philosophy, psychology, and aesthetics with his employees.”

    Shonibare’s sculptures—life-sized mannequins clothed in the colorful Dutch wax fabrics produced in Europe but closely associated with Africa—offer a provocative examination of European colonialism and European and African identities. The artist also investigates the idea of the outsider, intrigued and perhaps drawn to a dominant culture yet remaining distinct from and peripheral to it. Shonibare, who was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2004, was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in 2005 by Queen Elizabeth II. He uses his title professionally, if ironically, to highlight the ambiguousness of status, identity, and belonging.

    The Foundation’s collaboration with Shonibare pays homage to Barnes’s interest in contemporary art and artists. The centerpiece of the exhibition is the Barnes commission Magic Ladders, which explores childhood learning and the opportunities that education can create. In considering the exhibition and commission, the artist reviewed the complicated and decades-long correspondence between Barnes and Leo Stein, a fellow collector and an important advisor and friend as Barnes built his art collection and educational foundation. In Magic Ladders, three children ascend ladders constructed of books written or read by Albert Barnes. Other recent sculptures in the exhibition, Planets in My Head, Philosophy (2011); Planets in My Head, Physics (2010); and Pedagogy Boy/Boy (2011), echo the theme of the magical, transformative discoveries of childhood learning.

    The exhibition invites viewers to reflect upon Barnes’s collecting practice, particularly in terms of its connections to colonialism. One of the first American collectors to regard African sculpture as fine art rather than ethnographic curiosity, Barnes displayed African masks and figures alongside paintings by Pablo Picasso and Amedeo Modigliani. A champion of education for African Americans, Barnes made his collection of African art broadly available to black readers through Opportunity magazine. Ironically, his acquisition of African art was made possible by the imperialist colonization of Africa, a theme explored in Shonibare’s monumental Scramble for Africa (2003).

    Victorian Philanthropist’s Parlour (1996–1997), a room elaborately and excessively decorated with Dutch wax fabrics and garnished with objects placed symmetrically on a mantle, is for Shonibare a meditation on taste, status, and empire. In the context of the Barnes collection’s distinctive wall ensembles, it might prompt the viewer to consider methods of display.

    Yinka Shonibare MBE: Magic Ladders has been organized by Judith F. Dolkart, deputy director of art and archival collections and Gund Family Chief Curator and will be on view in the Aileen and Brian Roberts Gallery. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated 84-page book by Ms. Dolkart, containing a short essay and entries for works in the exhibition, some of them accompanied by reproductions of documents from the archive of the Barnes Foundation.

    Yinka Shonibare MBE was born in London and moved to Lagos, Nigeria at the age of three. He returned to London to study Fine Art first at Byam Shaw College of Art (now Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design) and then at Goldsmiths College, where he received his MFA, graduating as part of the “Young British Artists” generation. He currently lives and works in London.

    ABOUT THE BARNES FOUNDATION
    The Barnes Foundation (barnesfoundation.org) was established by Albert C. Barnes in 1922 to “promote the advancement of education and the appreciation of the fine arts and horticulture.” The Barnes holds one of the finest collections of Post-Impressionist and early Modern paintings, with extensive works by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Henri Rousseau, Amedeo Modigliani, Chaim Soutine and Giorgio de Chirico, as well as American masters Charles Demuth, William Glackens, Horace Pippin and Maurice Prendergast, Old Master paintings, important examples of African sculpture and Native American ceramics, jewelry and textiles, American paintings and decorative arts and antiquities from the Mediterranean region and Asia. The Barnes Foundation’s Art and Aesthetics programs engage a diverse array of audiences. These programs, occurring at the Philadelphia campus, online, and in Philadelphia communities, advance the mission through progressive, experimental and interdisciplinary teaching and learning.

    The Barnes Arboretum, located at the Merion campus, contains more than 2,000 species/varieties of trees and woody plants, many of them rare. Founded in the 1880s by Joseph Lapsley Wilson and subsequently added to under the direction of Mrs. Laura L. Barnes, the collection includes a fern-leaf beech (Fagus sylvatica ‘Laciniata’), a dove tree (Davidia involucrata), a monkey-puzzle tree (Araucaria araucana), and a redwood (Sequoia sempervirens). Other important plant collections include Lilacs, Peonies, Stewartias and Magnolias. The Horticulture school at the Barnes Foundation in Merion has offered a comprehensive, three year certificate course of study in the botanical sciences, horticultural practices, garden aesthetics, and design through a well-grounded, scientific learning experience since its inception in 1940 by Mrs. Barnes.

    Portion of proceeds from artist’s sale to benefit The Jackie Robinson Foundation


    - Texas artist Gregory Truett Smith to offer limited edition print reproductions of masterwork “He Floated Like an Angel – Portrait of Jackie Robinson World Series 1955” -

    AUSTIN, TEXAS (July 8, 2013) Fans of the movie “42”, as well as sports fans and baseball aficionados, will at last have the opportunity to own a limited edition print reproduction of artist Gregory Truett Smith’s rendering of famous African-American baseball player Jackie Robinson.

    The original painting, titled “He Floated Like an Angel – Portrait of Jackie Robinson World Series 1955” sold at a Santa Fe gallery for $20,000 in November 1996. In May 2011, the artist made a gift of a 48” X 30” on canvas reproduction of the original painting to Mrs. Rachel Robinson, widow of the late baseball legend.

    “He Floated Like an Angel – Portrait of Jackie Robinson World Series 1955”

    “What a wonderfully creative tribute to my husband Jack,” said Rachel Robinson of the painting of her late husband. “Gregory’s inspiring work hangs proudly on my wall.”

    “The racial conflicts of the 1960’s had a direct influence on my work, particularly in ‘He Floated Like An Angel’,” states Gregory Truett Smith. “I believe these reproductions will appeal not only to sports fans and baseball fans, but to many people who followed the stories and histories of African-Americans struggling for equality during that very pivotal period of American history.”

    Signed and numbered reproductions of the painting go on sale on July 8, 2013. The artist will offer three different sizes in limited editions of 150 each, with prices ranging from $485 to $685, as well as one size on canvas in a limited edition of 50, priced at $2,500. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the artwork are being donated by the artist to The Jackie Robinson Foundation, one of the nation’s premier education and leadership programs boasting a nearly 100 percent graduation rate, more than twice national average for minority students.

    Recently, the movie “42” has created a new awareness of the baseball icon, who signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers in the 1940’s and went on to become the first African-American player to break the color barrier in American professional baseball. With the success of the film, online sales of the limited edition reproductions at the artist’s website at www.splendidrocketstudios.com/jackierobinsonlimitedoffer are expected to be brisk -- and brief.

    About The Jackie Robinson Foundation
    Established in 1973, the Jackie Robinson Foundation (JRF) is the nation's premier education and leadership development program. Transcending financial assistance, the Foundation equips its scholarship recipients with a comprehensive set of support services including internship placement, career guidance, and practical life skills, resulting in a nearly 100% graduation rate, more than twice the national average for minority students.

This 2012-2013 academic year, JRF is providing generous financial aid and program support to 181 Jackie Robinson Foundation Scholars representing 30 states and the District of Columbia and enrolled in 87 different colleges and universities across the country.
