This will be the first time that Sona Mirzaei will participate in the annual event. She explains, “I am really excited about exhibiting at the Peterson Auto Museum because this is my first exhibition of the year and start of 2014 and what better way to showcase your works than at a museum. Luckily the two pieces selected (from Liberty Blvd series) works in harmony like yin and yang with the current museum exhibition – Warner Brothers Super heroes’ collection with their respective automobiles along with the legendary Ghostbuster’s car Ecto – 1; so it will be a fun night for a great cause.”
She continues, “At first I didn’t know to think of but when we did our walked through and saw their curatorial spaces, immediately it seemed perfect that these were the works to be featured. I have a very special relationship with the Chai Center and Rabbi Mendel Schwartz so when he asked me to participate I was overwhelmed with zestfulness! He loves my artwork and thought that it would be inspiring and a great way for the youths and adults attending to experience my creations and meet me by having my works highlighted in his charity event. Not to mention the fabulous Richard Simmons as entertainment for the evening festivities, will certainly bring extra energy and excitement to the event, in addition to the lively artworks that they have chosen from my collection. The event producer of the museum is thrilled about the artwork being exhibited with their action hero display and says it will be a fantastic night!”
