Reviews for For Love and Art

Rating: 5 stars  

I loved every bit of this presentation. It was telling us about the heritage of the Indians and I got quite enthused about how the Indians were living and how they rode their horses. And I especially like the painting of "The Pony Express." I am so glad the Sid Richardson Museum in Fort Worth became part of this project because I'd never be able to get to see these beautiful paintings on my own.

On a scale of 1-5, I'd give this project a 7.

For Love & Art is a breath of fresh air. I really enjoyed this presentation. I love art, it takes my mind off of everything. I loved today’s show, with all the Indians. I used to date an Indian back in high school. It also reminded me of Arizona, where I spent a large part of my life. Your show was beautiful and brought back so many fond memories. I'll bring a friend the next time you come.

On a scale of 1 to 5, I’d rate this about 6.

I had the opportunity to visit with Mark Lombard as he shared this Digital art book with residents of a nursing home. Each senior was touched deeply and appeared to "come alive" as they were introduced to the Masters. An Art book should be in every nursing home, VA hospital, Hospice and school in the world! And Mark should be cloned!

For Love and Art came from the imagination of Mark Lombard. He wanted to bring the art work of the Great Masters to those who are homebound. A dream of my mother's was to travel to Museums once my father retired. Unfortunately he had a stroke that affected his mind. He spent time in a nursing home. Having a digital art book, my mother and he were able to "travel" without leaving the home. Once he passed the book was donated to the Nursing Home in my parents' memory so others could enjoy it. If you have, or have had a loved one confined to home, a nursing home, a VA, group home or even hospice, consider donating a book in their honor or memory. Consider giving one to a school so children can see the work of the Masters in a medium so much more vibrant than in a regular book. This organization is caring and well run. I would recommend it to everyone.

I was lucky enough to travel all over Europe with my beloved husband during my life, and these artworks brought back many fond memories. I'm looking forward to you coming back again!

Bless the museums for being willing and wanting to share these paintings with people in assisted living. They were loved and appreciated!

This presentation was beautifully informative and hearing other people talk about how they experienced the paintings challenged me to think outside the box and see things that weren't obvious to me at first. We can't get to the museums anymore and it's wonderful that the museums can come to us. We're so glad you found us and can't wait for you to return!
