PORTRAIT PROJECT: The Story in Their Eyes
The power of the portrait.
A Cerimon commission of local Portland painter and graphic artist Jeremy Boldt, whom we met on the street selling his beautiful art. We then commissioned him to create 18 portraits to grace the stage of our spring benefit concert: S.O.S. - Songs of Sondheim.
Jeremy’s provocative illustrations captured the essence of the 9 American presidents and the 9 related personalities who are hinted-at in the songs from the award-winning Sondheim musical Assassins. In the wake of the Tucson tragedy of January 2011, the Cerimon concert brought focus to gun safety issues.
