Emily T. Nielsen, founder of both Romantic Rock and Punk Rock & Paintbrushes says, “The Punk Rock & Paintbrushes team is so excited to be hosting another holiday event in Los Angeles this December, sure to be our biggest yet! We will celebrate a successful year and everyone’s hard work with our amazing lineup of artists, photographers, and our wonderful DJs who volunteer their time to give back to our official nonprofit, The Sidewalk Project. We are very thankful to all of our partners for this show and all of our team for doing such an amazing job this year. Please join us in enjoying and celebrating ART…. without you there is no us!”
Punk Rock & Paintbrushes will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the opening night reception to The Sidewalk Project, a Los Angeles non-profit whose initiative is to enrich the lives of the Los Angeles houseless community. Through various mediums including art, music, and film, The Sidewalk Project aims to be socially active in houseless communities around the world, working directly on the street to share in a sense of connection and well-being. To benefit The Sidewalk Project, Punk Rock & Paintbrushes Holiday Art Show has also partnered with Vans Footwear to produce “The Art of Shoes,” where featured artists and other iconic punk rock musicians will paint one-of-a-kind designs onto pairs of Vans shoes to be auctioned at the show.
The Self Help Graphics & Art is located in the Boyle Heights area, at 1300 East 1st Street, Los Angeles, CA 90033. The Punk Rock & Paintbrushes group art exhibition will also be open on Sunday, December 22 from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm, with musical performances and other special surprises to be announced soon.
