Nicole Jurain- “ Juxtaposition”

On June 4, 2011 Skull-A-Day celebrated Skull Appreciation Day with an exhibit of over 100 skulls at Gallery 5 in Richmond, VA. If you didn't have a chance to make it to the gallery while the show was up, we now proudly present: "Skull Appreciation Day - The Exhibition".

The skull created for the exhibit is to showcase Corn and how much it has infiltrated into our society. The skull showcases what corn derivatives are in the air (invisible), in our food (hidden, citric acid, ascorbic acid, polysorbate 60 and 80) and our hygiene products (vitamin E, Glycerine, Acetal Alcohol). Anything we may purchase will most likely contain corn or a corn derivative. was started to help gain understanding and awareness to a serious problem of corn intolerance which can cause many different reactions, from typical allergy responses to more serious Neurological shifts. These reactions can show up anywhere from 5 minutes after the exposure to a day after and discomfort can last up to 8 days.

Due to Corn not being one of the top recognized allergens, the majority of medical professionals do not realize that the majority of emergency medications, operating room medicines, hospital stay medications, and prescribed medications as well as over the counter medications all contain forms of corn in them unless specifically removed. For example, corn starch is the top ingredient in almost all over the counter medications; look in your medicine cabinet read the inactive ingredients.

Ms. Jurain asks you to show your support and like them on the Facebook Corn Freedom page.

The 2011 Skull Appreciation Day - The Exhibition was a collective art show celebrating the 5th anniversary of and its tremendous audience of artists and readers.

Throughout year 5.0 we will be featuring artwork from the show a few times a week. This is a chance to see all of the excellent skulls that were on display, and FOR SALE. Some of these pieces may still be available and this is a wonderful opportunity to own an original piece of skullriffic artwork. There are many well known artists who have contributed very reasonably priced works and many of them have donated their portion of the sale to benefit a great charity, the Richmond Peace Education Center.

Please take a moment to view all of the remarkable work that was created for the onset of this annual festivity. Your skull will appreciate you for showing it some love.
