Gifted: someone with great natural talent.
June 15 2013, 7pm-10pm
We all know even natural talent needs dedication and constant work in order to truly be great. GIFTED is about showing what defines you as an artist. More than their best foot forward it’s a wordless/speechless conversation between each artist and the audience. This is also a fundraiser to to help T. Eliott Mansa achieve his tuition goals for the Yale Masters of Fine Arts program he was accepted into. Live music will be provided by several artist as well as libations. Come see what talent is flourishing in South Florida.
In support of their fellow artist 10% of all sales will go towards supporting him in his education endeavors. In the spirit of giving we ask that you’ll visit T’s page and donate to the advancement of this truly GIFTED artist. http://www.gofundme.com/2ja9ww
