Certificate of Duplication
Dry Erase Board with Digital Print, Photocopies, 8 1/2" x 11" x 1/8"
MDW Fair, via "Chicago Art Review presents a project by Philip von Zweck," Chicago, 2011
I was asked by Philip von Zweck to contribute an "original" artwork to a project he was doing for the MDW Fair in Chicago in late April of 2011. (Actually, Philip was asked to present some work by Steve Ruiz of Chicago Art Review (who was offered a booth) at the fair.) So Philip recruited myself and other artists to produce a work for this show that was 8 1/2" x 11" in size. These works were not for sale, but hung on the wall and were taken down and photocopied on a copy machine at the request of any fair-goer. Each copy was stamped and numbered "to ensure its authenticity" and given to the requestor. The copies were free and the print run was limited only to the total number given out during the run of the 2-day fair. Great idea, Mr. von Zweck! Naturally, I made available a "Certificate of Duplication" for the event.
