Private Painting and Healing Event as part of Garden in Transit Program
Time: 12pm to 3pm
Location: 149 W. 32nd St. (b/w 6th and 7th aves.)
RSVP (yes only): Melanie@portraitsofhope.org
Highlights will include a silent art auction, refreshments, and live entertainment.
Garden in Transit is an incredible new project by the nonprofit organization Portraits of Hope. Merging the best of healing arts with public art, thousands of participants at hospitals, schools, and community institutions will paint vibrant flowers symbolizing life, beauty, hope, joy, inspiration, and healing on weatherproof panels that will be installed on the rooftops, hoods, and trunks of New York’s iconic yellow cab creating a magnificent "garden in transit" for the NYC metered taxi's centennial in Fall 2007.
The project will create a massive beautification and visual rebirth of New York’s Cityscape. This new life has a unique meaning for those whose lives were touched most closely by the tragic events at the World Trade Center. We invite 9/11 survivors and the families and friends of victims to come and paint at a private healing event at our studio.
A special stamp will distinguish the artwork of honorees at this event in recognition of their special role in the Garden in Transit project.
