BEVERLY, MASS.- Montserrat College of Art reports primary sponsorship funding in support of the Beverly Oracle Project. This important contribution to the Beverly Oracle comes from author J. H. Sanderson who looks forward to participating in the development and implementation of this innovative and unique project. His unrestricted contribution has been used to cover artist expenses as well as related administrative costs.

Commissioned by an NEA Arts and Cultural District Public Art Competition, The Beverly Oracle will be a new permanent art work jointly hosted by the city of Beverly, Montserrat College, and Beverly Main Streets.

J. H. Sanderson is the creator of, among other literary projects, the Roadhouse Sons - a seven-novel series about a '70s rock cover band. Book One-Dangerous Gambles and Book Two-Renegade, are available via major online outlets and in select bookstores, and Book Three-Cold Front will be released in Fall 2014. The Roadhouse Sons enterprise includes novels, graphic novels, and music CDs, the last of which include era-specific popular music and original works, all produced by award-winning British musician, Tony Heyes.

As a writer, Mr. Sanderson is also one of the authors interviewed by Beverly Oracle artist Anna Schuleit Haber. His answers will be incorporated into the Oracle database along with those of all the other distinguished authors and poets the artist will collect in the coming months.

The Beverly Oracle is a public art project that revolves around a single, strange chair inside an oracle structure, painted frescoes, smart glass, and a library of luminous answers. Designed for the Beverly Common and open to the public, visitors will enter the oracle's structure, a small single-room building inspired by historic garden follies, and sit in a chair specially designed by the artist. The windows of the oracle will turn opaque (smart glass technology), and a voice will prompt the visitor to ask a question. The spoken response that the Oracle will give to the question will be drawn from a pool of answers contributed by writers and poets from across the country. These individuals will be consulted by Schuleit Haber, prior to the opening, in an adventurous road trip that will span several months and be documented on film.

Montserrat College of Art is a small, private, residential college of visual art and design, founded in 1970, by artists, for artists, educating the creative problem solvers of tomorrow. The college offers the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, continuing education classes and four galleries exhibiting works by international, national and regional contemporary artists, intended to offer art education beyond the Montserrat classrooms through a series of public lectures, gallery talks, catalogs and events.
