Artist is seeking people to cast in plaster for upcoming project entitled “Gagged & Chained”.

Specifically, we are seeking people who can be cast as Judge Julius Hoffman and Jurors from the 1968 trial of Bobby Seale (The Chicago Eight Trial), see below for the looks we are hoping to find. 

  
**Please be aware that the process of casting body parts in plaster requires you to stand or sit still for up to twenty minutes until the plaster dries. This process may make some people anxious if they tend to get claustrophobic** 

 

We do not cast in the nude.  We will be casting your face, neck, torso, arms, and hands. 

:::Dates::: 

Casting is open from July 1 through July 11, 2019.
You will be asked to come in for 2 to 3 hours on one of these dates. 

:::Location:::

Mid-City, Los Angeles; we will send exact location to you when your appointment is booked. 

:::Compensation:::

$30
