Illustrating The Old Testament: A Midwest Book Release Tour

An artist talk and book release event for Sam Robertson's Illustrated Old Testament

Hell Above (27th St. and 27th Ave) will be hosting a special event on Saturday, June 4, 2022 at 5 PM, with agnostic artist Sam Robertson who spent 7 years creating 257 illustrations inspired by the text of the King James Old Testament. Robertson will give a presentation of the resulting 520-page hardcover book The Illustrated Old Testament (published with 11:11 Press) and be joined by three bands: The Controversial New Skinny Pill, Miami Dolphins, and The Amniotics. Robertson intends to sell the book door to door, dressed as a Bible salesman from the 1970’s, recording his interactions with people in a performance art piece intended to be made into a podcast. He will present a snippet of that work in progress, show and discuss 25 paintings, and answer audience questions.

He will have books and prints for sale at the event. Sam’s presentation from 5:00-6:00 will be free to the public and at 7:00 music will begin, with tickets costing $10.
