ARTISTS CONFRONTING THE INCONCEIVABLE documents the international competition for glass artists to create work that combats prejudice. Over 1000 artists from 28 countries submitted work & personal commentary that focuses on the ravages of hate. Dedicated to the memory of Anne Frank & the 2,000,000 Jewish & Christian children who perished in the Holocaust, the book includes a remarkable portrait in glass of Anne Frank. In all, ninety-six exceptional works were selected for publication. The artists were presented Gold, Silver & Bronze awards. One of the most haunting & unusual aspects of this fine art book is the personal commentary that accompanies each work. The artists' words offer a passionate perspective & an additional dimension to their sculpture. Editor Borowsky stated, "Whether it lies shattered on the street or prominently exhibited in a gallery, glass is a reminder of both the strengths & the fragile qualities that lie within us & within civilization itself." ARTISTS CONFRONTING THE INCONCEIVABLE contains 105 color plates on acid-free museum reproduction paper. It is available from the American Interfaith Institute, 401 North Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19108 for a $100.00 contribution.
