TRANSCEND – Art and Fashion Philanthropic Event August 19

CELEBRATE AN EVENING OF ART, FASHION AND PHILANTHROPY AT TRANSCEND

Twenty artists come together to celebrate the life stories of 12 children cared for by Presbyterian Children’s Home and Services

What: Holly Voden Art will be hosting Transcend, an art, fashion, and philanthropy event located in The Janette Kennedy Gallery and South Side on Lamar Artists’ Quarter. This event will feature twenty artists who have come together to celebrate the life stories of twelve children cared for by Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services. These stories of tragedy to hope will be represented using four different creative mediums: poems, paintings, fashion and editorial photography.

As a patron of Transcend, you can expect to enjoy a behind the scenes artist experience where the stories of twelve children will be transformed from words into visual representations through live hair and make up, live body painting, a live runway show and a live editorial photoshoot.

Each child’s individual story will be presented as an artistic collection created by collaborating artists. These collection will take you through the darkness to light, despair to hope, forgiveness and love that is the reality these children call life.

The show will take place on August 19 from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., with an after party at Checkered Past Wine Pub. This unique event is a great way to experience impactful art while also bettering the lives of the children in our communities.
