“Art From The Heart” presents a unique opportunity to support a worthy cause, acquire a beautiful piece of art, and have fun doing it! Beverage sponsorship kindly provided by the Brooklyn Brewery, beats furnished on opening night by DJ Prolific. All proceeds will go directly to support the Vanderbilt Republic Foundation’s inaugural project, "Masters". This fall, the Foundation, in an unprecedented partnership with Arn Chorn-Pond and Cambodian Living Arts, will devote four weeks to rigorously documenting the lives of the Cambodian performing masters who narrowly survived the Khmer Rouge in a manner their stories deserve, and with an approach that honors and celebrates their significance in our world. Acclaimed large-format portrait photographer George Del Barrio will lead a unique team of American artists deeply inspired by and connected to Arn and the CLA's narrative. The team will craft life-sized portraits of the masters, their students, their instruments and the world they inhabit, all at the highest professional standard. In addition, a feature-length, broadcast-quality film of the entire process will be created, focusing on the perspective of the masters as they collaborate with the American team. What will transpire is a beautiful story about the arts renaissance in Cambodia today.
