Purchase artwork inspired by Demian “D-Man” Acquavella to help fund the film!

nelstein soul embrace

Former Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company dancer, Jora Nelstein, has generously donated her metal print, “Soul Embrace” to D-Man. This acrylic and pen drawing onto a photograph was then printed onto 12×16 metal plate. It resonates with imagery and symbolism, commemorating Jones/Zane artists who were lost to AIDS. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this piece will go to the film.

Send an email via the Subscribe button if you’re interested in purchasing “Soul Embrace.”
