Subaru Share the Love Campaign & Art Has Heart


Some months ago, I posted that Art Has Heart was selected by Subaru America as one of 20 local charities across the United States to participate in the Share the Love campaign sponsored the company.  We were nominated for this honor by Galles Davis Motors in Albuquerque and a very good friend of the foundation, Lawton Davis. 

Eight days ago, JB Pena represented Art Has Heart at the presentation of the check.  I am sure many of you will enjoy seeing some pictures that were taken that day.  It was a honor for us to have been chosen and we want to publically thank Subaru America, Mr. Davis, and the sales team at Galles Davis for ther incredible support. 




Tish Hinojosa & Chris Wall to Entertain at Legacy XIV


In addition to interaction with celebrities (see below), Legacy is known for great art at great prices, many artists in attendance, and some wonderful entertainment.  That will be no different this year because the we have Tish Hinojosa to entertain.  Tish has the most wonderful voice and her songs are rich and vibrant and she delivers them with style and grace.  We are fortunate to have her.  Tickets are $50/person.  Call Mike at 505-890-4695 for additional information and/or tickets.   Here are links to two of her musical performances:


Chris Wall has also been added to the entertainment cast for Legacy.  We are thrilled to have Chris agree to be with us.  Chris is the epitome of Texas country music.  If you click on the videos below, you will see what I mean.  This is shaping up to be one of best Legacy Art Albuquerque events ever.
