Once again, thanks to Evelyn Ellias, I had the opportunity to contribute with art and more to the non-profit 826LA. For their Gala event on June 6th, 2018, I created 35 sculptural books with unique paper flowers arrangements that served as center pieces for the 826LA Untold Stories of Los Angeles event. 6 of these works were bid on and many more were taken home by donors.
826LA is a non profit organization dedicated to develop the creative writing skills for children and teenagers. That is how the idea of creating arrangements with the books themselves was developed.
Here are some images, the close-up photos are mine, while the rest were taken from 826LA flickr.
Thanks again Evi and of course Shawn Silver, 826LA Events Manager for trusting in me!
