A Benefit for Art in Action
“I think the role of an artist is to inspire. I use LEGO® as my medium partially because I feel it’s a way to make the art very accessible, connect with people of all ages–and that allows them to hopefully be inspired…If I can reach people to inspire them to create, then I’m doing my job.”
Nathan Sawaya, 2017 Art Visionary Award Recipient
March 23, 2017 was a magical night thanks to our sponsors, donors, guests, and Nathan Sawaya, all of whom helped raise more $220,000 to benefit Art in Action in its mission to bring arts education to all children. This fabulous cocktail party featured one-of-a-kind live auction items, a silent auction with original artwork and exclusive art-themed experiences, a spread of delectable food, and a signature drink specially created and donated by our friends at Rocket Vodka.
The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the Art Visionary Award to Nathan Sawaya, creator of THE ART OF THE BRICK, renowned LEGO® brick artist, arts education advocate and found of Art Revolution.
