In commemoration of Lahaina, Hawaii, world-renowned artist Vladimir Kush announces the release of his Masterpiece compilation, “Metaphorical Journey”, in a very special size and edition. This limited edition print on canvas is a “thank you” to all of his collectors and fans for being such an important part of Kush Fine Art in Maui.
This compilation painting was the first limited edition print sold upon opening his first gallery (Kush Fine Art) in Lahaina, HI, in the year 2001. Welcoming thousands of visitors every year since then, his connection to Maui, and especially to the historic town of Lahaina, is undeniable. Many of his artworks include symbolisms that showcase the inspiration rooted from the magic of Hawaii.
“In 2001, I finished the painting Metaphorical Journey, and you can recognize all the clouds … they are definitely Hawaiian clouds. This painting illustrates the life journey for everyone, but for me specifically, it was the journey from the homeland to the promised land, and the promised land was always associated with Hawai’i.” – Vladimir Kush
Visitors from all over the globe discovered Metaphorical Realism for the first time in Maui, and those memories will never be forgotten. For many, Kush’s art will always be a connection to Lahaina and Maui. His gallery was a very important part of the town, almost a landmark and a “must-see”. At the same time, this historic and magical town will always be a very important part of Kush’s journey and history.
Kush created his own genre of art known as “Metaphorical Realism”, which implies the possibility of truthful depiction of the material world and combines it with his own vision of cultural world traditions and mythology. In his first publication or catalog of coffee table books, also titled “Metaphorical Journey”, he provides the reader a guide to his journey and exposes the mythical-poetical background on which art bearing the VK emblem can be most easily observed.
Visit or call Kush Fine Art Galleries in Las Vegas, Laguna Beach, and Miami Beach, and explore a collection of original paintings, limited edition prints on different mediums, bronze and silver sculptures, a metaphorical jewelry line, coffee table books and art catalogs, and a wearable art collection by the Metaphorical Realist.

Leveraging Product Security Hub’s platform, Apraciti Announces the Launch of the 2nd Annual Medical Device Cybersecurity Industry Benchmarking Assessment and Encourages all Medical Device Manufacturers to Participate
HADDONFIELD, N.J., September 12, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Apraciti, LLC, a leading provider of medical device cybersecurity services, has today announced the launch of the 2nd Annual Medical Device Cybersecurity Industry Benchmarking Assessment in Partnership with the Medical Device Innovation Consortium. The complimentary assessment is hosted by Product Security Hub, a platform and workplace for medical device cybersecurity, built for medical device manufacturers.
“One of the goals we had in developing the original Joint Security Plan (“JSP”) with the Healthcare and Public Health Sector Coordinating Council was to provide medical device manufacturers with information and tools to help them build and mature their product security programs to further protect patient safety. With the release of the 2nd Annual Assessment, we are continuing to support that mission and help drive the industry forward in such a critical domain,” said Colin Morgan, Managing Director of Apraciti, LLC.
Companies who take part in the survey will gain an understanding of their overall maturity rating, based on the JSP, as well as security domain ratings and details of how each question was answered. This will provide them the opportunity to assess their current position and determine areas for improvement.
“It’s common for Product Security leaders to be asked how their program compares to their peers in the industry, or what aspects of the program should be prioritized to continuously improve. Participating in this assessment is a great starting point to help begin to answer these important questions,” said Morgan.
The assessment can be found by navigating to the Product Security Hub Login Instructions page (https://productsecurityhub.com/product-security-hub-login-instructions/).

Exciting Changes for the Bay Area Book Festival as It Heads Into Its 10th Year
BABF Board of Directors 2023
Announcing the Bay Area Book Festival Board of Directors
BERKELEY, Calif., September 12, 2023 (Newswire.com)
The Bay Area Book Festival has elected three new members to its Board of Directors: Aya de León, Piper Kerman, and Aida Salazar. This exciting slate of members joins Board Chair Brooke Warner and Treasurer George Rehm to lead the festival into its next iteration in the aftermath of the resignation of Festival founder Cherilyn Parsons in 2023.
The Bay Area Book Festival has been a cultural and literary mainstay of the Bay Area for the past nine years since its inception in 2014. Its headliner events have brought in speakers such as Roxane Gay; Rebecca Solnit; Gloria Steinem; Jason Reynolds; George Saunders; Ann Patchett; Christian Robinson; Tommy Orange; Anthony Doerr; Tayari Jones; Joan Baez; W. Kamau Bell; Kazuo Ishiguro; and many more.
The festival’s dedicated staff and growing board will steer the festival into a future under new leadership. Managing Director of the Festival Samee Roberts will spearhead overall planning for the 2024 Festival, which involves scaling back in size while keeping intact everything that’s special and wonderful about this important community event, including diverse and inclusive panels, headliner events, and the family-friendly outdoor street fair.
Next year will be the Festival’s 10-year anniversary, and it will take place, per usual, in Downtown Berkeley in either May or June 2024. “We are planning for a somewhat smaller footprint this year,” said Festival Chairperson Brooke Warner, publisher of She Writes Press, “and we’re doing everything in our power to ensure that the Festival will be as special and well-attended as it’s always been.” Warner highlighted that by many measures, both in terms of programming and anecdotally by way of attendee feedback, the 2023 Festival was the most successful yet. Because this is a transition year, a scaled-back Festival will allow the board to adapt in Parsons’ wake. “We’re committed to continuing the legacy that Cherilyn left us, and this new slate of board members makes me feel confident that we’ll be able to do just that.”
Incoming board member Aya de León said, “This festival is a precious resource in a world where independent literary institutions are struggling. Stepping onto the board is an opportunity to provide accessible literary community to the Bay Area, to highlight urgent issues in our time, and to celebrate books, authors, reading, and community. I am excited to give back to this community.”
