DALLAS, TX – Color Me Empowered (CME) is proud to announce our 4th annual, 2019 Annual Fundraiser,

‘I HEART ART’ 100 Stories To Tell, located in their beloved new headquarters in the heart of Oak Cliff, 2101 W. Clarendon Dr. Dallas, TX 75208. Color Me Empowered is a non-profit that provides programming to empower children and communities through visual arts education and the implementation of civic art.

This year’s event is produced in partnership with FGIII Fine Art Productions (FGIII) and sponsored by Maddrey, PLLC. The theme for our ‘I HEART ART’ fundraiser this year will be 100 Stories To Tell. Maddrey, PLLC has generously sponsored 100 – 24”x24” gallery wrapped canvases for 100 established DFW mid-career artists, who’ll tell 100 stories with each art piece.

All canvases will be sold for a flat rate of $400, allowing attendees a phenomenal one-chance opportunity to own original art by local celebrated artists. ‘I HEART ART’ provides Color Me Empowered an avenue to maintain their respected relationship with DFW artists by splitting the sale of each art piece with the artist who created it.

“We’re proud of our new fundraiser concept and excited to grow our event to a more consistent branded art opportunity,” said Kristen Elizabeth Rice Jackson, CME’s Founder and Director, “our themed event empowers each artist with a chance to interpret their stories with purpose. It’s important to the work that we do that our immediate community sees the Dallas Fine Art community up close – it makes creative careers more tangible to our students and their families.”

“We’re honored to partner with Maddrey PLLC for this year’s CME annual fundraiser and we consider this event our obligation to connect DFW artist’s with direct access to an underserved public through their art,” said Frankie Garcia
III, Principal and Founder of FGIII “Our shared address with CME is a perfect fit for our newly branded art fundraiser and we can’t wait to show it off a bit.”

“At Maddrey PLLC we’ve dedicated our practice to supporting the arts, but more importantly, is the support that Color Me Empowered gives to children through their amazing programs and outreach. Bringing art to under served communities has been a passion of our firm and we could not be more supportive and impressed with the work of Color Me Empowered. We’re proud to be a sponsor of this year’s I Heart Art event and look forward to all the lives that will be touched by Color Me Empowered in the future.“ said Thomas Maddrey, Founding Partner and Lead Attorney of
Maddrey PLLC.

This year’s event is November 2nd from 7pm10pm, with VIP access from 6pm7pm. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $15 or purchased at the door for $20.
