Support the ARTS and inspire a new generation! Poets and Artists "Mash Up" in the first of a new series of coffee table books!
Our project is simple - to create and publish a unique and innovative collaboration of visual art and poetry.
Who loves the feel of a big coffee table Art book? Who loves to read Poetry? We do too!
Starting on April 7th, The Artist In You Blog will be publishing a selection of art works and poetry that are being considered for the very first publication of "Art and Time" - a unique and innovative Coffee Table Book filled with beautiful images and inspiration words of art. Studies show that the art market has suffered more than any other during this recent economy - many people avoid purchasing new works because they have simply 'run out of wall space'. "Art and Time" provides the perfect solution.
Your pledge of support will enable us to create and publish this timeless, classic collection of images and words to inspire. Ripples of good will continue after publication giving exposure for burgeoning artists and the "ARTIST in YOU', as we hope to inspire EVERYONE to discover the joy that comes with creativity!
Photo Books like the "prototype/example" shown in the video are very expensive to produce. In fact the book as shown cost about $200.00 for a single copy. With your support we will be able to produce our first limited edition series and thereafter, with the help of additional sponsors, we can extend the publication to reach and inspire others to "celebrate creativity"..THEIRS!
If you believe in the value of a beautiful art and poetry book, a treasure that you will want to return to again and again to enjoy the vast array of visual art and words of art, this project is tailor made for your support!
It all began with a Facebook Creative Jam! The Artist In You Page challenged folks to post their Art and engaged Poets from around the world to 'mash up' their words of art to translate how each work made them feel! Synergy of thought and creative process engaged hundreds of thousands to view, like and participate. "The Ultimate Collection" (working title) Art and Poetry book series mission was born!
For those who love poetry! For those who love art! For those who still love the feel of a big coffee table sized book, to visit, peruse, enjoy each day...we are so excited to present our first intended publication "Art and Time"!
Renowned and Burgeoning artists have created an opportunity, a visual keepsake presentation, that erases all imaginary lines; engages, explores, and substantiates our mission statement:
Inspiring Change With Every Brush Stroke!
Thank you for watching this video! We hope it will inspire you to become a part of this mission!

“ART AND TIME”
Winner of the Rilke Prize
I sit and daydream.
I’ve woven clouds and sounds,
Songs and longing, into poems
Filled with meager strands
Of memory, its half seen faces,
And faded limbs once parted
To accept young lust.
All this I give to poetry.
Poems keep vanished afternoons
From never ending
To remind us, so wisely,
Even Time succumbs to Art.
