Sharon Koskoff Fosters Community With Innovative “Alone Together: A Corona Crises Collage”

Sharon Koskoff has created a unique art exhibit, “ALONE TOGETHER: A Corona Crises Collage” by inviting area artists to submit photos of their original works of art. The 6″ x 6″ images have been merged into a 5′ x 30 ‘ large scale mural which will be seen at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County in Lake Worth Beach.  Available June 13 through July 18, it can be viewed virtually with an Opening Interview and Overview on Saturday, June 13 via FaceBook and Instagram.  Art lovers and patrons can purchase a print-on-demand (includes shipping) photo of their choice to benefit the PBC Artist Relief Fund.  The Rickie Report is excited to have taken part in the initial Call to Artists and cannot wait to see the finished mural!

Community Artist, Sharon Koskoff spent March, April & May 2020, COVID-19 quarantine time, creating a three-dimensional, mixed-media, mural installation. Koskoff sent out a Call to Artists online and incorporated 164 six-inch square artworks submitted by 113 artists. The works were created “during or inspired by“ their time ALONE in the pandemic crisis. She felt the need to connect with other artists and inspire creativity during this unprecedented and isolating experience. She says, “My goal is to keep all artists productive and working! I built this large-scale mural in the confines of my home, while communicating with other artists, and within the limitations of my computer, printer and ordering materials online. This undertaking has given me a great sense of sanity, in this insane world!” 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sharon Koskoff tells The Rickie Report,  “While living alone with underlying health issues and a stay-at-home order in Delray Beach, I knew I had to stay connected and stay active! As a community motivator and public mural artist, I challenged other Palm Beach County artists to submit a square- sized creation of something relevant that they had made or that inspired them during quarantine. The overwhelming results have kept my creative spirits intact while giving participants a sense of pride, purpose and recognition”.

Bryan Jackson

From Zack Jones:

When I first met Bryan, I knew he understood the local music scene and the music industry but he didn’t just like music; he was music. Bryan Jackson was my friend. He was a friend to all of us. He was sincere, kind, funny and always made the best of the bad times. Sadly, Bryan was tragically killed by a drunk driver coming home from a gig with his fellow band mates and friends of the band, Ghost Cat.

 

After his death, I, along with the remaining members of Ghost Cat wanted to create an event to celebrate Bryan’s life and what he loved most: music. And so, the Bryan Jackson Music Festival was born.This festival is an all-day, all ages event built around unsigned local musicians and bands from near and far. In an industry that has become so tough to get ahead in, this festival brings friends and family of Bryan, hardworking bands, music lovers and supporters of all ages together for a cause.

 

The Bryan Jackson Music Festival: Episode II will be held on Saturday, January 9th 2016 at Harbour Pointe Park located on the Indian River in Fort Pierce, Florida from 11:00 a.m.until Midnight. The event will benefit Learn to Read of St. Lucie County. The day will be packed with 35 Musicians and Bands of all genres across 3 stages, with an assortment of Craft and Art Vendors, Food Trucks, a Skate Ramp and activities for the children such as a bounce house, big jump and a giant art mural.

 

3,000 attendees and participants came out to support this event in its inaugural year in 2015 so on behalf of Bryan’s parents, his brother, his band, and the local music scene of the Treasure Coast, we invite you to participate in the Bryan Jackson Music Festival: Episode II. We have included Sponsorship and Vendor Opportunities for you to consider. Please contact Candace Callahan for more sponsor and vendor information.
