If You Break the Skin Trust Fund Prints

I am starting a trust fund for the If You Break the Skin youth filmmakers and for the first fundraiser I am offering a yearly limited edition archival ink-jet print for 200 bucks.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from the "Detail I-95 (Phylicia's Bedroom Wall)" print sale will go into the “If You Break the Skin Trust Fund.” After the project ended, a number of the youth filmmakers have lacked cash for basic needs, and for items such as a cell phone with minutes, so a possible job could reach the applicant if they were hired. Unfortunately, the Philadelphia Public Art Project does not have the budget to disperse funds as needed, hence, the print sales for the trust fund. The money from the sale of these prints will be saved and given to the youth filmmakers, at my discretion, when money is needed. All of the filmmakers will receive money from the fund. The money will also pay for carfare and meals for the youth film makers at all If You Break the Skin related events. Looking for a tax deductible donation? Look elsewhere friends! This is outside of all institutions and is intended as a "no-strings attached money is handed over as needed" trust fund. There ain't no social security numbers involved in this.

As usual, these prints are a yearly edition... meaning that I am only making 15 of these prints in 2007, and they will be signed as such. These prints are archival ink-jet prints of the photo above, at 7.5"x9.5"

A little something about aging out of foster care.


Be on the look out for a few more yearly limited editions coming up.

Next one up will be to fund studio heater repair.
