Hello, Friends,

I have been out of communication with you. Since our last correspondence with my monthly Huffington Post articles, updating you on my latest book, Wheelchair Wisdom, and maintaining a thriving counseling practice with individuals and couples, challenged by life’s adversities by designing a model to age with attitude, I want to update you on my latest adventure and ask for your support. Thank you in advance for reading to the end!

Today, given the divisive nature of the country, l submitted a request to TIME magazine that they publish the attached provocative Pop Art image on a magazine cover within the next 80 days before this critical Presidential Election.  With your support, it is my intention that this will be published before the election.

Given all the frightening news on CNN this morning, and its international consequences, this image is more powerful today, as our world is more skeptical and dangerous.

We can unite and untangle the knots that are binding our freedom and peace of mind.

 

I present this image now, as a ‘wake-up’ call to act compassionately and choose wisdom, understanding, cooperation, and peace, so that we are responsible for the
consequences of how our knotted image is reflected in the world. My suggestion for this specific image of TIME, would be:
“1776-2016 UNRAVELLING
THE KNOTS??

If you accept my invitation, please share this with your network of friends and colleagues to align with me to create a critical mass, and manifest this very public, compelling and thought-provoking image of the knotted flag, so relevant in today’s political and radical mood of the country.

First, a little background...

I don’t know if you are aware that in 1971, after graduating from Moore College of Art, I was the founder/owner of an award winning graphic design and marketing studio, Noble Design & Associates, located in Philadelphia, and was a part of the creative team for Philadelphia’s 300th birthday, Century IV in 1982.

I have always been an advocate for social change, focusing my vision and creativity, inquiring what is possible and what I can learn in any situation. For example, after my diagnosis in 1982 of MS, I wrote You Are Not Your Illness: Seven Principles for Meeting the Challenge, designed the Inspirations exhibit at the National Liberty Museum, wrote Wheelchair Wisdom: Awaken the Spirit through Adversity. I am still writing for Huffington Post for close to four years.

In those early turbulent years of Viet Nam, Cambodia, Nixon, racial outbursts and social transformation, carried over from the landmark era of cultural, political, and technological change during the 60s into the 70s, a new relevance and contextual shift began to touch and infuse our hearts and spirit, changed the world, forever.

In 1974, in response to my citizenship and the social, racial, political environment and cultural make-up of our country at that time, I designed an 18” x 24” political poster, representing the turmoil of the country.

The graphic design image was of the American flag, its red ribbon-like stripes twisted and tied up in knots on a stark white background. The title of the lithograph is handwritten, 1776-1976 Happy Birthday??

I only have 23 originally signed lithographs left, dated 1975, Linda Grossman, my former married name.

Fast forward, 42 years later, this past June, 2016, the Drawings, Prints and Photographs Department of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, has added this color lithograph to the Museum’s Contemporary Art Collection, to be featured in the Museum this November, 2016!

“This poster has added a nice context to the posters we already have,” says Innis Shoemaker, senior curator, Drawings, Prints and Photographs Department, PMA.

In today’s unsettled, wild political climate, I am proud to share this lithograph with you and our community, before the 2016 presidential election and throughout the year.

In gratitude,

Linda
