My boo Antwan “Big Boi” Patton is riding high off of the success of his highly anticipated album release “Sir Lucious Leftfoot: Son of Chico Dusty.” The album debuted at #3 on Billboard, moving a respectable 62,000 units in the first week.
Art of Life- “Canvas for Kidz” will be held Saturday, July 17, 2010 at the Mason Murer Fine Art Gallery. The event will be hosted by comedian/actor Fazion Love and 100% of money raised will go towards Big Kidz Foundation’s programs that focus on the Arts and Educational programs for kids.
“Canvas for Kidz” (a LIVE auction) is the highlight of the event and several of Big’s celebrity friends have come together to support the foundation and have created and/or donated artwork to the cause.The list is pretty impressive and includes Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, George Clinton (singer/ Rock & Roll Hall of Fame/producer), T.I. (rapper/actor), Idris Elba (actor), Janelle Monea (singer/song writer/performer), George Lopez (TV Host/Author)/Comedian), Julius “Dr. J” Erving (NBA Hall of Fame) and many many more!
There will be Live music (with surprise performances), gifts, Complimentary Valet and food and liquor are included in your ticket price. The event is also being endorsed by the National Black Arts Festival.
Grey Goose is one of the sponsors of the star studded event so although it’s for the KIDZ, this is strictly an adult affair.
