Antwan “Big Boi” Patton’s signature charity event “Art of Life/Canvas for Kidz” will be held at Mason Murer Art Gallery on July 17 at 7 p.m. Hosted by actor Faizon Love (from Couples Retreat), this event aims to give back to the community through the gift of art.
The event will feature artwork from celebrities all over the world that will be sold in a live auction to benefit the arts and humanities programs developed by the Big Kidz Foundation. Other luxury items that have been generously donated will be available for sale in the silent auction. “We wanted to create an event that really shows how important the arts are to our community” said Jennifer Lester, Executive Director of the Big Kidz Foundation
Some of the celebrities who will create one-of-a-kind artwork for the live auction include: Martha Stewart, Actor Idris Elba, T.I., Janelle Monae, Dr. J, George Clinton and Fahamu Pecou and more. The event will feature some of Atlanta’s best live entertainment with a special performance especially by Big Boi. Food will be catered by some of Atlanta’s finest restaurants.
