“Moonlit Shore”Brian Crain

ZO’s concept for its unique work has always been to bring together a body of artists to forge a new dynamic for creative expression. As such, we are developing an initial group to contribute, counsel and help us steer this creative and open forum to a place of inspiration for its members as well as its viewers. As we grow, we envision possibly forming a collective in each country so that we can better communicate with our global audience.

INSPIRATIONS from the very beginning . . .

Willie ”Mack” Thompson | Gil & Louis Williams

Willie Mack Thompson is a Board Contributor for the new National Museum of African American History and Culture now open in Washington, DC. Mack has been a mentor for years and we have shot portions of our film “The O.D.D. Room” at his home in Berkeley, CA

We have also been inspired by the hard work of Col. Gil Williams, appreciate his early casting help with some of our filming and would be “no-where” without the founding support of our favorite physicist, Louis C. Williams!

Erwin Binder

Sculpture | “Requiem” Johnny Carson Park, Burbank, CA

Erwin Binder was on ZO’s Board of Directors at our first incarnation as the International Arts Consortium, Inc. (IACI).

We have had a lot of people who believed in our project — and through many tests and trials are extremely happy that somehow we have been able to regroup, restructure and “believe” . . .

There is a time for everything and that initial debut was just not our time to catch fire. We all hope that the time has come!

Mr. Binder will be looking down from Heaven and smiling — what a wonderful man!

Claudia Lucas

Claudia Lucas has been with this project since its very beginning. She is one of our “Angels!”


For all of those who have believed in us from the beginning!
