Pieces of Sanity

On January 22, 2005, the Pieces of Sanity event project, mixing music, video, performance art, spoken word, and multi-media visual art, was not only a statement of expression and freedom for artists and audiences alike, but also helped raise over $3,000.00 for the Humanities Foundation in their mission to bring affordable housing and children’s arts programs to the surrounding economically depressed community.

In addition to the event, Pieces of Sanity produced a book that was made available for sale at the event. Assembled as the event production unfolded and sponsored by BookSurge Publishing, the book features art, poetry, photographs, and song lyrics from featured artists and performers.  BookSurge, a pioneer in the print-on-demand book industry was the perfect partner and provided the perfect medium to create a book on the fly, as events are unfolding.

The book was published in real time with the event. Featuring the works of participating artists, musicians and poets. This was our first live event / book publishing project.

Event made possible by the following: Five Loaves Cafe, Mustard Seed, Mobius Beer, Joe Margarite, Karen Kowalski, and Catherine & Greg Atkinson
