Mirror Mob participants came out to ATHICA to collaborate with renown local photographer Blane Marable. Mr. Marable guided everyone in creating multiple photos in which participants were reflected in each others' mirrors.

Mr. Marable--a professional photographer recently voted "Athens Best
Photographer" by the Athens Banner-Herald--captures events as staff photographer for the University of Georgia.

In a generous gesture,
dealmobs, who is also a 'Taking Part' exhibit sponsor, will coordinate photo sales from its website:  http://www.dealmobs.com... with all proceeds benefiting ATHICA!

The Mirror Mob event was the brainchild of Ms. Shockley,
dealmobs V.P. of Sales & Marketing. Shockley--a former art student and photojournalist with studies at the New England School of Photography in Boston, MA and at UGA's Lamar Dodd School of Art under her belt--invited her old pal Mr. Marable, who also generously donated his services.

The Mirror Mob event was ATHICA's first joint art project with a corporate entity, adding an interesting layer to the innovative art-making approaches the Taking Part exhibit has brought to Athens' viewers.
