Back in March, I jumped on an opportunity to be a part of the Oak Park Brewing and Paint the Globe Foundation’s silent auction celebrating Women’s Empowerment during Women’s History Month. The challenge was to create a piece of art, any media type, to enter into an auction to support the PTG Foundation. Then the top six earning pieces would be made into labels for a one-of-a-kind limited edition six-pack, the sales of which would ALSO benefit the PTG Foundation. The selections of art and show of talent were INCREDIBLE. It made me feel proud to be an artist from such a diverse and multifaceted community.
I am extremely pumped to announce that my art entitled ‘THE CENTER OF EVERYTHING’ was purchased and then chosen to be printed on one of the limited edition 6-pack cans! (YAY!)
This entire project has been such a joy to be a part of. I got to enjoy seeing my art on display at Oak Park Brewing alongside all the incredible other pieces. I got the thrill of finding out good and early that my art was one that would be printed. I even got to come into the brewery on canning day to help test, label, and finalize the canning of the beer! MY BEER! It was a whirlwind experience from beginning to end and I am just so thrilled to have been able to be a part of such a great cause.
I am so proud of all the other artists who had their pieces featured as well. To hear more about my lovely compatriots, click on the links below and follow them on social media!
If you want to get your hands on one of these epic unique six packs, join Oak Park Brewing for their release party featuring an Art Gallery, Film Screening, and all the beer you can drink on
SATURDAY APRIL 23 FROM 2:00-6:00!
I also want to give a massive shoutout to my production manager (and partner) Dusty with Dusty Roam Media for grabbing these already beautiful beers and turning them into perfectly delectable pieces of thirst-quenching art in his studio. Check out all his amazing work on his website and IG! Cheers to all!
