Open Hearts Arts Center is a non-profit nationally accredited, community based art program located in West Asheville for differently abled adults. Artists of Open Hearts Art Center have a unique opportunity to express themselves through visual and performing arts, as well as profiting from the sale of their artwork. On Wednesday, September 19th, Open Hearts will be hosting its 7th Annual Student Talent Show and Fundraiser, here at Highland Brewing Company from 6:30 - 10:00 p.m. The talent show is a favorite of the students who prepare for months for the event. Funds raised at this year’s event will go to support the agency’s new Boundless Art Program, which will allow for student field trips and to offer satellite classes in the community. The agency hopes to raise at least $15,000 to support this program.
Tickets for the event will be $10. You can pay at the door. Ticket price includes an amazing talent show, delicious food, and local musicians. There will also be a raffle/silent auction throughout the evening, so bring your cash. Awesome items will be available!
“Adults with disabilities tend to get overlooked,” said Sonia Pitts, Executive Director and Co-founder, “but our students are incredible people and their need for love and creativity is just as valid as yours and mine.”
