Condensed Matter and Other States of Mind - A Collection of poems by Douglas A. Fowler " The average density of the universe is something like 0.0000000000000000000000000001 kilograms per cubic meter (10-28 kg/m3). One cubic meter of granite weighs some 2700 kilograms. This book's density is 550 kg/m3. Your body weighs in at about 1100 kg/m3, a density that is some 10 million trillion trillion times that of the universe. Our condensation from the void would seem to be the exception; not the rule."

No War No More -Edited by Arya F. Jenkins  "We take a stand for peace, independently and collectively, artistically and politically. In these times it is imperative not to let slip through one's hands the opportunity to say again and again, with whatever means possible, creative and peaceful, that war is wrong, that love is the only path to peace, justice and freedom, and that we will not veer from this path no matter the consequences. This idea fed this project and I hope will feed the minds and hearts of those who share in our efforts by reading this book."

WNWG Presents "The WNWG is a unique writing club based in Youngstown Ohio. Four authors and friends, each specializing in different genres and styles, have come together to form the Wednesday Night Writing Group. Together, we will take you on a journey into the funny, twisted, macabre and at times surreal realm of our imagination. Join us as we explore the mysterious, the magical, and the utterly absurd as we take you on an adventure through our oft-twisted mindscape."

Mosaic Masterpiece Project   Individual artists creating one masterpiece.

Eastwood Mall in Niles has offered to host this CAPF project this fall/winter of 2009. The project will be a 15’x 20’ mosaic mural consisting of approximately 70 individual panels that when assembled will depict one large image (The Mona Lisa) representing artistic views of the community. Each panel will be the creation of local individual artists. Upon the installation of the mural CAPF will host a public grand opening gala inviting the press, introducing the artists, and giving recognition to donors. The efforts of this project will attract positive interest in our extended communities.
The mission of The Community Art Projects Foundation (CAPF) is to raise awareness of the value of regional art through involvement of adult area artists by creating artistic works that will benefit our community.
