Dec 5 - Jan 4: Artists have gifted a piece of art work to The Love Yourself Project. The Art will be sold wrapped, labeled with all pertinent artist information and advertisements....all unseen by the buyer in order to entice the consumer into choosing based on the chance of acquiring a valuable piece of original art. The worlds of unconscious consumer habits, attitudes about art and games of chance all come together in this fundraising installation that leaves everyone in a win win situation.
"There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life."
