A Window Between Worlds (AWBW), in collaboration with nearly 70 established and emerging Los Angeles artists, presents Artworks for Healing, a heartfelt affair on September 27, 2014 from 7-10 pm, hosted by The Peninsula Beverly Hills.
Artworks for Healing is a celebration of AWBW’s healing art programs, which give voice to survivors of domestic violence and trauma. The evening will feature 70 art pieces curated by a prestigious group of advocates including Lori and Herair Garboushian of Beverly Hills’ Garboushian Gallery and William Escalera, chair of LACMA’s Modern and Contemporary Art Council. All artwork will be exhibited anonymously so guests can choose the pieces that speak most to their hearts.

Guests will enjoy wine, spirit tastings, hors d’oeuvres, desserts, gift bags and a unique collection of auction items from Mikimoto, Cirque du Soleil, Staples Center and many other generous sponsors.
AWBW will proudly present the 2014 heART Award to Amanda Quinn Olivar, Advocate, Curator, and Event Co-Chair. With Amanda’s outreach to artists and the arts community, AWBW has stepped into a new era of Artworks for Healing. It began when she helped to curate our first highly successful Artworks for Healing at the Skirball Cultural Center in February 2012. Earlier this year, Amanda brought together over 45 artists who have been involved in, or influenced by, the Venice beach art scene from the 1950s through today. This exhibition to benefit AWBW at James’ Beach was a huge success and established wonderful new friendships for the organization. Amanda has been instrumental as a co-chair of the Artworks for Healing committee and a member of the curatorial team. AWBW is grateful for her hard work and dedication, touching the lives of many through art.
Since 1991, A Window Between Worlds has been dedicated to using art as a healing tool to empower survivors and raise awareness in our communities to help end the cycle of violence. All event proceeds benefit AWBW’S expansion to serve new partners including those working with male survivors, veterans and their families, sexual assault survivors, and youth beyond the shelter setting. We hope you will join us for this special evening to celebrate our new mission.
