Show Me The Monet,

the original colors, surface textures and brush
strokes in bas relief to achieve museum quality.

contracted and produced the first ever independent showing of John Lennons art - Music
For The Eyes - which attracted more than 5,400

Why Monet, some might ask Because of his
multi-dimensional creativity, we might answer.
In the words of Arthur Koestler, True creativity
often starts where language ends, Monet mani-
fested a lifelong avalanche of creativity in each
of three separate areas: painting, cooking and
gardening. In doing so he created a realm of
awesome productivity beyond the limitations
And thats what really fires our spirits! Here is a
bold and brilliant chance to celebrate the majesty
and mastery of the past in the all-powerful pre-
sent moment; to create an immersion experi-
ence while crafting a living legacy for the
creativity of young people. This is simply an
epiphany of colorful awareness which flows
quietly from the splash of flowers, the food and
the diverse collection of art pieces, all readily
available to the senses.
