Teaser #1 for June 23 interactive art event “heroes with heART.” Poster features @RebeccaRaw

 Model: Rebecca Rawlinson

 

In partnership with INTERSECTIONS MEDIA, in collaboration with VANCOUVER FRIENDS FOR LIFE , I introduce my June 23 interactive art event: heroes with heART at District 319!

THURSDAY June 23, 2011 8 PM- 11PM, DISTRICT 319

319 Main Street, Vancouver BC. 

More details in post links below!

Hosted by Rebecca Rawlinson and Tommy D, featuring Vancouver activist icons as both portrait subjects and special guests including Joan-E!
This event, at the elegant District 319, is an interactive, therapeutic art night to celebrate iconic heroes in the LGBT activist community.

We are commemorating the anniversary of Stonewall, as it represents to me the power of the human voice to speak loud and be proud!  The subjects at my art event are all incredible individuals who embrace the beauty and variety of the human spirit.  And YOU get to meet them, work with them, celebrate them!

WATCH the entire film STONEWALL UPRISING on PBS online.

$15 Early bird! $20 after 9 PM per participant!

At the event, the subjects (about 15 of them) will be in attendance. In the main workshop room, the portraits will line the walls and art supplies will be on tables in the centre.  The attendees will finish the portraits during the event as part of a large interactive art therapy session celebrating freedom of expression!!!

In the theatre, there will be looping videos and a lounge for attendees.

At the event, I will do a live portrait and body painting on a model.

***UPDATE! We’ve decided to auction off the 40″ x 60″ interactive portraits THE NIGHT of heroes with heART: Katarina Thorsen’s Interactive Portrait Event! Proceeds from these pieces go to Vancouver Friends For Life! About 5 of my smaller portraits will also be auctioned off during the evening, with part of proceeds benefiting Intersections Media as well as Kat’s youth at-risk art therapy program!

The entire process will be documented on film by INTERSECTIONS MEDIA, and photographed by Julia Kozlov!

Recall my March 10 art event that started it all!
