NORTHFIELD, Ohio, Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Fan Mosaics, LLC, is offering 2,500 Jerry Garcia fans the opportunity to include their photos in an officially licensed mosaic print of the Grateful Dead legend.
To mark the August anniversary of both his birth and his death, Fan Mosaics is creating a Jerry Garcia photo mosaic built entirely from photos submitted by his fans. The fan images will be arranged to re-create a Jerry Garcia photo taken by world-famous photographer Herb Greene. The resulting limited-edition archival print will be art to frame, display and treasure for many years.
"We're thrilled to partner with Fan Mosaics to offer this memorial tribute to Jerry," says Trixie Garcia, on behalf of The Jerry Garcia Family LLC. "Inviting his fans to be part of this project, as he continually invited them to be part of the Grateful Dead experience, is our way of thanking them for their years of dedication to his music and his art."
To participate, individuals visit the Jerry Garcia Fan Mosaics Web page, located at www.fanmosaics.com/jerrygarcia. They upload their image and pay the participation fee, which includes one image upload, one limited-edition 24"x 36" print of the mosaic, a certificate of participation and authenticity, and a digital screen saver that shows the mosaic being formed. A portion of the participation fee from each Jerry Garcia Fan Mosaic will benefit The Rex Foundation, which was founded as a Grateful Dead charitable agency in the 1980s.
"Fan Mosaics are a unique and memorable way for fans to show their loyalty to an artist," says Rob Hixenbaugh, the company's director of fan & brand development. "The Jerry Garcia photo mosaic goes beyond the traditional music memorabilia to include fans in the creation process as well as the final product."
The opportunity to participate in the Jerry Garcia photo mosaic will be limited to the first 2,500 fans.
Fans will want to secure their personal place in Jerry's legacy by uploading a photo today.
