    We love The 575 Project & have been huge fans of BFAS since the early 90's. My family and I love following their stories, news, rescues, conquests & especially the way in which the organization has been able to branch out around the world through their various coalitions & put forth such incredible leadership. We've kept an eye on Cyrus Mejia's artwork, as well. When The 575 Project was released, we were in awe of Mejia's ideas & creativity, & how he was able to present the harsh realities of what work there is yet to be done within the rescue community in a very real yet subtly touching way that left everyone thinking. We were excited when the exhibit was presented in Los Angeles; Having the opportunity to view the exhibit in person was simply mind-blowing & breathtaking; a bit of sadness in the air mixed with a lot of love in the room. Nothing can compare to viewing the exhibit in person; there's just that much more power and energy, & at least one of the... More > works involved lighting 575 candles and having them blown out...An incredibly powerful moment that can't be replicated in print, but that's only one of the works in this beautifully touching project. When Cyrus was working on the project, he made a call to arms of sorts, to those who had rescued or adopted a pet. The request involved people sending in a photo of their pet with its story on the back. The first 575 received would be featured in the exhibit & would also receive one of 575 prints of a lithograph created especially for this endeavor and entitled, "I saved a life." I sent in a photo of my first kill-shelter rescue, a 15Lb bat-eared terrier mix with "widow's peak" markings on his head (We couldn't help but give him the unofficial middle name of "Eddie," as the hood on his head reminded us of Eddie Munster's haircut!) :-) We were delighted to receive our piece of Cyrus Mejia's art that now hangs next to our print of a heart painting by Koko the Gorilla (named by her as "Love"), with our "furkid" photos from over the years. Viewing the exhibit in person was a very moving experience, & we were delighted to notice the "I Saved a Life" portion laid out in small albums on a table with the center one open to our Chuy's photograph, as shows in the book. Although nothing compares to an in-person viewing, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book as it details the various exhibits and their meanings; a serious subject, beautifully handled. With 100% of the profits going to BFAS, what could be better?< Less
