It’s almost time for one of my favorite events of the year! The annual Fresh Arts gala is this Friday, February 24 and this year’s theme, The Cineball, is all about the movies. I’m always a fan of any excuse to dress up and plan to rock my best Cruella Deville look for the event.
While the costumes, glitz and glam will make for a fab evening no matter what, I am most excited for the event because of the cause it supports. Fresh Arts, as an organization, is dedicated to strengthening the sustainability and vibrancy of Houston’s arts community and works hard to ensure Houstonians have access to a thriving, innovative and diverse arts sector. Its work includes providing programming and services to assist local artists in their professional development and offer them access to resources needed to pursue a passion in the arts.
I’ve always believed access to the arts and encouraging young people to pursue careers in this field are vital parts of a thriving community and encourage anyone with an interest in Houston’s arts scene to get involved with this awesome organization (it helps that they throw really fun parties, too)!
If your calendar is open this weekend, tickets for The Cineball are still available, so you can join us to see for yourself what all the fuss is about!
See you there,
