What a lovely event last evening at the Lexington Art League to unveil the collaborative artwork and book: A Beautiful Life Through the Eyes of a Child.
In January the Art in Unlikely Places (AiUP) team joined up with Greenhouse 17 and The Kidz Club with music therapy and art healing to create beautiful collection of drawings. These drawings have been brought together to create yet more pieces of art. Four quilts were created by the work of Scott Walz and Arturo Sandoval. Scott photographing all of the children’s drawing and compiling them and Arturo taking the printed compilations and making four unique quilts.
It was exciting to see the AiUP team, an extremely talented group of students that worked hard from concept to fruition, celebrate with the community on a wonderful achievement.
The pictures show the group that gathered for the celebration and also Scott and Arturo being recognized for their part in “A Beautiful Life Through the Eyes of a Child”. Also, there was a book signing for those that purchased books by Scott and Arturo.
Special musical guest performance by the Accoustikats was appreciated by all. The Accoustikats wrote and sang a song created just for this event. It was truly amazing and for an encore they sang “My Old Kentucky Home” which one can never tire of hearing. Thank you Accoustikats!
