This year's featured artist is Jose Jaramillo and our 15th anniversary artist is Michelle Ferran (below). Pablo Milan (below) has the honor of paintiing a very special guitar (available for auction) that is annually handmade for this event by Gene Milligan.
This year Tish Hinojosa and Marvin Dhykuis will perform a benefit concert on Wednesday night, May 6th, at the Jim Morley Theater to begin our Legacy 15th celebration
How You Can Support Legacy 15
One easy way you can support Legacy 15 is to purchase a ticket (s) for the Tish Hinojosa benefit concert at $15 each. We will use each honorary ticket purchased to provide the opportunity for a student to attend. Her music is both cultural and inspiring and it would be great to expose young people to it. She is donating her performance.

Everybody on our email list received a recent email highlighting some art that has, in part, been donated to us. The donor wants a small amount out of each piece but the primary benefit goes to Art Has Heart and our students.
In the email, size restricted us so we could only show one photo of each and not all off the donations. On this post, we can do a little better so here are the total of the artworks available.
There is some wiggle room on the price of each piece so if you are interested, just let me know. A buyer would complete two seperate financial transactions. One would go to the donor as an art purchase and one would go to Art Has Heart as a straight tax deducitble donation.
Here are the artworks:

As those of you who follow this website know, each year at Christmas and Valentine's Day, we offer our generous donors a chance to win some nice artwork. This year, it is our hope to have multiple winners. We will start our Annual Fund Drive on November 17th and conclude it on December 21st.
The giveaway will follow the exact same format of the prior ones. The two items that are available right now include a great signed and numbered large serigraph by Malcolm Furlow and this beautiful one-of-a-kind ceramic vase that Amado did this past weekend (see below). The pictures show the vase before it is fired so the colors look matte but it will sparkle after it is fired.
All you have to do to be part of the drawing is make a tax deductible donation Art Has Heart. You can do that by following the donation prompts (giving) on the frontage and use PayPal of print the donor form and mail. The donation can be of any amount. If you have any questions, please let me know.
