From the Mesa Arts Center:
Don't miss BEAD INSPIRED! A fun event, FREE to the public featuring glass bead making demonstrations by talented bead artists, LIVE music by Sarah Styles and the Brotherhood of Blues, bead stringing activities, special appearance by Coyote Howler of the Phoenix Coyotes, performances by traditional Pow Wow dancers, and... so much more. Hosted by the Arizona Society of Glass Beadmakers.
Bead Inspired is the signature fundraising event for Beads of Courage, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children coping with cancer and other serious illness through its innovative arts-in-medicine programs. The treatment journey for a child with a life threatening illness is very challenging involving many painful and uncomfortable procedures. Through all Beads of Courage Programs, children receive handmade beads, donated by artists, as symbols of honor and acknowledgement of their treatment milestones. These beads help them record, tell and own their stories of survival. The Beads of Courage Program serves over 60 children's hospitals nationwide, including Phoenix Children's Hospital and Cardon Children's Medical Center.
Also, join us for the Bead Inspired Art from the Heart ticketed reception and live auction in the Piper Theater following this event.
Time:10:00AM Saturday, March 20th
Location:Mesa Arts Center - Wells Fargo Garden
