Artist to Donate 'Writer's Block' Sculptures

Priority given to organizations that plan events
for 75th anniversary of the Nazi book burnings in May 2008;
exhibition by New York artist began on Berlin№s Bebelplatz


(Dec. 3, 2007, New York City) Artist Sheryl Oring announced today that
she will donate three of her 'Writer's Block' sculptures to a qualified
institution. The sculptures are part of a large-scale public
installation created by Oring and originally shown on Berlin№s Bebelplatz, site of
the 1933 Nazi book burning in that city.

After the Bebelplatz exhibition in 1999, іWriter№s BlockІ was
subsequently exhibited at the Jewish Museum Berlin; in the Lions№ Courtyard at the
Buda Castle in Budapest; the Boston Public Library and Bryant Park at the
New York Public Library. In each place along the way, the exhibition drew
attention to historical and contemporary issues of censorship.

The three sculptures up for donation are currently housed in Berlin.
Because of the historical nature of this work, Oring is interested in finding
host organizations that would like to plan events in May 2008, the 75th
anniversary of the Nazi book burnings, to commemorate the authors whose
books were burned across Germany in May 1933.

Each of the sculptures is 1 cubic meter in size. For more information,
