Stellar Constellation blooms and roams

16 Jan

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

On Thursday night, January 13, very unique art exhibit opened in L2 – Stellar Constellation. Forty portraits of DC philanthropists, created by artist Don Patron, “landed” on the walls of L2. According to Don, 38 out of 40 charity heroes visited the exhibit that night.

“These Charitable souls, like the stars, are observed in our City and we are guided by them. Yet, these individuals are never the focus of the charity they dedicate their lives to… They are leaders but place others before themselves. They make tangible the hopes of our American Society Dreams… It is my honor to paint the light of these stars as they illuminate, not only my daily life, but all others their strong identities cast a light over.” – D.P.

Those who weren’t able to attend the opening, definitely have lots of chances to glance or stare at those creations for three more weeks. After that time, paintings are going to hands of those who are portrayed, so will become parts of private collections. Do not miss your short opportunity to observe those you might know, captured on paper. The event was executed by fantastic couple Sandro and Tati of Art Soiree.
