We had put off the World premier of BRAVE DESTINY, THE MOVIE (see Wikipedia article below) that was scheduled for last November. We had to finish construction of our fire escape at the WAH Center.

A request to have the show was made by a contingent from England in 2002 headed by Brigid Marlin, Chairman of The Society for the Art of Imagination in England, the Society being a large international artists' membership organization. The show included such famous names as Professor Ernst Fuchs, founder of the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism in the 1940sH.R. GigerAcademy Award winner for the designs of the title character and its otherworldly environment in the film ?Alien? and many others. �5,000 in cash prizes for art were handed out by Society judges, from a total of over �20,000 contributed by the Baron of Fulwood during 2003 to The Society for the Art of Imagination.

The show included works by Salvador Dal� that were on loan as well as artwork by H.R. Giger.
The show was opened with a "Grand Surrealist Costume Ball"[5] with Le Viconte de St. Ouen opening the Brave Destiny exhibit at the ball along with the Baron of Fulwood and Brigid Marlin.
The Brave Destiny show continued citywide at other galleries, and internationally with a ten-museum concurrent traveling exhibit throughout Australia.
The exhibit and its attendant events were covered extensively and favorably in the print media as well as onMTV. However, the exhibit also drew criticism, including the publication of a tract entitled "Craven Destiny" which accused Brave Destiny of misrepresenting and exploiting surrealism.
The show, from set up to take down, was the most photographed art show in New York City.
