Become part of the world's longest artwork
- Dear Artists and Art Teachers,
You can help one artist's "dream" come true. Andrea
Anderson would like to create the worlds longest
painting. To do this, she needs your help.
Here is Andrea's message to me:
Hello, my name is Andrea Anderson (aka D. Violet
Butterfly). I am a physically challenged artist
working on developing the world's largest/longest art
project and I would like to invite artists and other
creative people from around the world to help me. My
goal is to remind people that we are all connected and
that even the smallest things we do add to the big
picture while breaking records and boundaries as only
art can and I would like to invite you to participate.
I intend to break these records and boundaries by
getting as many artists (and creative people, in
general) involved as possible to work on this project
with me. Each artist that wishes to be a part of the
project will receive 2 X 9 (or more) inches of canvas
to create a piece of original artwork. Then, once each
artist returns their section, I will create one inch
puzzle pieces from that art to add to my own pieces in
order to create the world�s largest piece of
art/puzzle, revealing that every little thing adds up
to the big picture. In order to do this, to set a
world record for the for largest painting/art project
my goal is for the painting to reach over 1,115 ft X
6.5 ft (340 meters X 2 meters) or over 43,485 inches X
2 inches (with my dimensions of being 2 inches wide)
and in order to reach the most people to ever work on
an art project I need over 25,297 people and for it to
reach the world record for the largest puzzle it needs
to be over 18,000 one inch puzzle pieces. So, I am
going to need a little help.
I will be giving each artist credit for their work and
if their original pieces are ever sold I will be
donating half the profit to the charitable
organization of their choice and the other half of the
profits will go to the charitable organization of the

(it�s free and you don�t have to sign up to see what I
am up to).
What do the artists get out of this?
Well, first, they will get noted credit for your work.
I am documenting every part of this project and if you
choose to become a part of the project you will be
given noted credit in the documentation.
The second thing they will get out of this is freedom
of art and for their artist voice to be heard and part
of the biggest picture of them all.
The third thing they will get is the satisfaction that
what they do will help affect our world. Not just
people directly related to them but people they have
never even met.
Not to mention, they could also be a part of three
World Records. (That IS the plan.)
I will eventually have a webpage (all I have right
now is a journal I am keeping that may eventually be
published and a Google group where I post updates and
details pertaining to the project) but for right now
this thing is going to have to work through word of
mouth and the connections that people have with each
other. Which, actually, if you think about it, is how
this project should work. So, if you know of any other
people or groups (like... for instance... art classes
of all levels, art clubs, artisticly minded
individuals that may not exactly be artists YET, etc.)
that would like to become involved, please let them/me
know. This is for all artists and people and the more
the better. Also, if you know of anyone that would be
interested in contributing supplies or anything else,
please let me know.
Also, one more thing, each artist will be given two
pieces of the puzzle. One to keep and one to give to
someone that they are connected to.
I would like to invite/encourage others (individuals
and groups, big and small) that would like to work on
the project to visit
or to email me for more information at
the_violet_butterfly@... and please, if you know
anyone that might be interested feel free to pass this
information on. You do not have to be a professional
artist, anyone can participate.
