A sun my husband, artist Andrew Reach submitted to CBS Sunday morning broadcast on March 31, 2019 following a story about wrongfully convicted artist Richard Phillips who created art in prison for decades. So we were astonished when Andrew got an email with the subject line “We’re using your sun again tomorrow” from Jessica Frank with CBS Sunday Morning and she said:
I wanted to let you know that your yellow and black sun, which is SO cool, will appear on our Sunday Morning broadcast tomorrow, at the end of a story that we’re doing on Street Wear. It’s the perfect ending.
On Sunday morning June 23, 2019 the sun aired for the second time on the show at the end of the Street Wear Segment which you can see below.
I’m honored that my husband Andrew Reach’s art is part of a wonderful art collection; Summa Health’s new Healing Arts Collection for the new Patient Tower at the Akron campus. Meg Harris Stanton, Summa Health Healing Arts Leadership Council, curated the collection. She selected “Ninety One Kites” where it has been placed on the fifth floor across from the nurses station. Christine Havice, Chair, Summa Health Healing Arts Leadership Council researched and wrote about each artwork with dedicated web page’s for each artist (see list below). Below is excerpt of what she wrote on Andrew’s page:
After viewing this print, you may also find his reflections helpful in negotiating the visual arts world of today, where both digital and the older “analogue” techniques co-exist and often, as here and in certain other works of art in the Summa Collection, interpenetrate in new and exciting ways.
