To create an organic, multimedia, interactive art environment and experience exploring the light and dark side of love.

 The Project: “Visual Passion: On Love” will exhibit the light side of love and the dark side of love. In the store front windows of Gallery 1978 at 1978 Springfield Avenue, Maplewood, NJ, the artists will install two environments having to do with the light side and dark side of love. On the middle walls of the gallery the artists will be working together on live collaborative painting projects throughout the month. In the rear of the gallery the artists will set up a stage in front of the left wall with video projected behind it where they will show films and interviews about love and passion. The stage will also be used for performance art pieces, poetry readings and musical performances. On the right rear side of the gallery an interactive “creation station” will be set up for visitors to paint on 12”x12” canvases their own visual interpretations of love. These paintings will be instantly exhibited becoming part of the visual art atmosphere. There will also be a blackboard wall that the artists call “ the writing on the wall” where visitors will have the opportunity to write or draw with chalk their own visual interpretations of love.

The Visual Passion Experience: From Thursday evening, July 26, 6pm to 9pm through Sunday July 29, 2012 (times to be announced) the public is invited to have the complete visual passion experience. This will begin a four day, public interactive, multimedia art collaboration. It will be the culmination of and introduction to the world of love through the collaborative efforts and creative eyes of artists Mikel Frank and Gerard Amsellem. The goal is to engage members of the public in a multimedia art reality quite different than the standard gallery going experience. There will be interactive elements such as actors engaging the public, live performance pieces, musical performances and  live participatory action painting, which will fully immerse the visitor in the Visual Passion Experience.
