Artist makes art history with the Artist Creations Cookbook
“The Artist Creations Cookbook projects are the collaborative efforts of renowned contemporary artists with commentary support from a few politicians and art business owners. Our collective goal is to celebrate, uplift and support the visual arts communities wherever they may be. My personal mission is to ensure art is an essential part of every child's life, especially those who live in underserved communities.” -- Arthur L. Dawson
Orlando, FL -- Arthur L. Dawson is a self-taught artist who grew up just south of Tallahassee in Wakulla, Florida. He developed an interest in art at the age of seven, when he created a comic book with himself as the superhero vanquishing evildoers. As an adult, he became well known in law enforcement for his highly praised reconstructive and aging techniques for identifying missing persons and deceased individuals of unknown identity. Later, because of the influence of Lois Mailou Jones, Arthur decided to move away from forensic art and devote his talents full-time to the fine art he always longed to do. In 1991, Arthur founded Ethnic Visions, an art publishing distribution company, to sell and promote his artworks. His latest projects include the Youth Art Program created in 2006 and Contemporary Masters, Inc., created in 2012.

It features beautiful art and tasty recipes of 27 nationally renowned contemporary artists from the U.S., Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Haiti, and Jamaica! Retail price is $60.00.
Arthur’s Artist Creations Cookbook is truly a unique art project. There are art picture books, books about artists, and there are cookbooks, but there has never been a book containing all three. In addition to all the beautiful food related art and yummy recipes, you will also find an artist Remarque page. For an additional fee, you can get a removable (8 x 10) original work of art.
