"I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps "Oh look at that!" Then- whoosh, and I'm gone...and they'll never see anything like it ever again... and they won't be able to forget me- ever."

Tell All The People - The Jim Morrison Project

Because Jim Morrison was an artist first and a performer second, it is no wonder that Clint Hill has made it his mission to use the power of Jim's legacy to honor, recognize and promote local art and artists in Jim's hometown of Melbourne, Florida.  The Jim Morrison Project is a fledgling organization devoted to both preserving and recognizing Jim's legacy in his hometown as well as giving local artists the opportunity to receive the recognition they crave and deserve. 

One of The Jim Morrison Project's most ambitious goals is to get the artwork of local artists prominently displayed along the Rothdell Trail in the near future.  In addition, The Jim Morrison Project is also collecting money to fund a private Jim Morrison memorial in his home town.

The The Jim Morrison Project is in its infancy, but it is currently in the process of teaming up with interested local artists in an effort to get their art and names out into the community.  The founder of The Project is also in need of donations of cash - to get the Jim memorial built - and space - to display artwork in the local community.  If you are a local business, this is a great way for you to get involved in the Melbourne, Florida Arts community as well as show your love for Jim.  You don't have to be an artist to contribute to this vision, just a lover of art.
