Dan came to be a visionary artist through
a near death experience caused by his contracting Dengue Fever (also known as Break
Bone Fever) and Spinal Meningitis while working in Mexico. You may read more about
Dan and view selected pieces of his art at www.danrhema.com. Dan’s near death experience
and subsequent creative healing art has brought forth a unique collaboration of Louisville
playwrights, poets, actors, video producers, and dancers. “A Quest For Healing,”
a monologue, poetry reading, and dance program performed in the midst of Dan’s visionary
art, has been presented three times in the past year. The documentary “Altered
Visions: the Dan Rhema Story,” was shown at the Louisville Film Festival in
November, 1997, coinciding with a solo art show at Artswatch Gallery. A brief synopsis
of the film can be found at http://www.artswatch.org/Films.html.
In 1999, the Bunbury Theatre will present a production of a work based on Dan’s near
death experience and his new life as a visionary artist. Please check out the April
Raw Vision International Gallery and Studio Directory for the new Dan Rhema Studio
listing. Dan is currently the featured artist on the 2001 fund web site at http://www.metaglyph.com/2001. Take the time to read about David Kremples and his work
