LowRes Cropped SophiaGasparian 2011 AngelaMariaOrtizS.Sophia Gasparian is one of many successful artists who have agreed to donate their work to “Artworks for Healing” at the Skirball Center

Sophia talks about the event, “It is an honor to participate and be among a great company of people who care about public issues.” Then adds, “Women are often uneducated and unprepared for social success. With my painting titled ‘I Deserve You,’ I hope to encourage young people to expect positivity and greatness in their lives. We have to let go of our personal grief and fight for whatever we believe in. With a little inspiration from the arts, it is possible to achieve one’s dreams and goals.”
