Katie’s Art Project is proud to announce a new partnership with Music is Medicine. The two organizations will begin work this summer to facilitate connecting musicians with children facing terminal illnesses to write and record an original song in an effort to create a lasting legacy through art.

[the art project] is coming to the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture on July 23rd, 2017 from 6–9pm. Tickets for this one night only pop-up museum event will go on sale June 16th. The VIP reception will begin at 6pm featuring early entry to the gallery, a meet and greet with the artists, and Luminous Sounds and two alcoholic beverages for guests 21 and over. Following the VIP reception, general admission tickets will be available for entry at 7pm. The evening will feature the Public Premiere of “The Spot”, a dance film by choreographer Karla Garcia, and director Ted Ely. Karla is well known as one of “So You Think You Can Dance” Season 5’s finalist and the premiere will feature a live performance by cast members of Broadway’s Hamilton including Karla Garcia, Morgan Marcell, Voltaire Wade-Greene, Kamille Upshaw, David Guzman, Roddy Kennedy, and Christina Glur.

All fine art and fashion will be for sale and all proceeds will support the arts programming Katie’s Art Project (KAP) will build with Music is Medicine and creating a lasting legacy through the creation of art with children facing terminal illnesses.

Katie’s Art Project is a fiscally sponsored project of Fractured Atlas working to foster the connection between artists and terminally ill children to leave a lasting legacy through art. Founded in 2010 by Stephanie Klemons, Associate Choreographer of Broadway’s smash hit Hamilton, Katie’s Art Project strives to bring arts programming directly to kids with cancer in their own environment. “We bring the Broadway performer to them.” The idea is to create a long term relationship that builds a motivation to endure the difficult treatments, build friendships and create legacies. Fractured Atlas is a 501(c)(3) public charity. Contributions for the purposes of Katie’s Art Project are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Music is Medicine, founded in 2008 by Leora and Ariela Friedman, is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that mobilizes musicians to support seriously ill or otherwise disadvantaged youth. Its core model enables musicians to create personalized, original music for patients to uplift and empower. Drew Seeley [Another Cinderella Story], Lucas Grabeel [High School Musical], and Ashley Argota [The Fosters] have participated. Music is Medicine has also inspired student musicians across the U.S. to organize benefit concerts and hospital-based music programs through campus chapters.

The Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Center for Thought & Culture, a project of the Archdiocese of New York, is a forum to highlight the true, the good, and the beautiful. At the Sheen Center, we seek to deepen, explore and challenge ourselves, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, intellectually, artistically, and spiritually.

Tickets go on sale on June 15th. To learn more click here.
