For the Mattress Factory Museum exhibit "Messages and Communications" (October 2, 2005-April 3, 2006), Marsico constructed a cylindrical "Rare Book Room" with an adjacent "Entrance Hall". Using the subjects of passion and politics, Marsico created a series of illuminated broadsides for the Entrance Hall. These messages hold clues to what the viewers will experience in the Rare Book Room. There are seven broadsides from this series that comprise this boxed set: Cheney; Rumsfeld; Rove; Santorum; Ashcroft; Ten Commandments, Arabic; and, Ten Commandments, Hebrew.
