"Last year's event focused on Indigenous Artists supporting Dream Catcher Foundation," said A+C Founder Rob Canton. "We were thrilled with the success of PLA: Indigenous Collective due to the dozens of artists that generously supported the Foundation and partnerships forged with several indigenous influencers. Everyone came together to promote indigenous artists and fight against murdered and missing indigenous women." Rob added, "We built on that success by joining forces with 10 charities, resulting in 250 artists and 700 works of art this year."
Eugene Brave Rock, best known for starring as "The Chief" in Wonder Woman (2017), is passionate about arts—particularly indigenous art. A Blackfoot from the Blood Tribe, which is part of the Blackfeet Confederacy, Gene recognizes the value of leveraging arts for causes, including his personal journey to preserve indigenous languages through his own Oki Language Project. "Native artists do a wonderful job preserving the culture of our various peoples," said Gene. "Leveraging arts to support the preservation of languages is an amazing use of the arts for good."
Houston Astros' World Series Champion and Gold Glove winner Kyle Tucker's charitable mission is bringing awareness to hospice care and helping support the quest to bring more affordable, quality care to those requiring it. "My family's experience when my grandfather was in hospice brought to light the important role of organizations and people that devote their lives to providing compassionate, end-of-life care for our loved ones and their families," said Kyle. "We are thrilled that many artists chose the Kyle Tucker Foundation to support through the sale of their artwork and hope people take time to see their amazing work and perhaps take home a piece or two."
These are two of the 10 charity beneficiaries of this year's Peace Love Art. Other charity ambassadors include Lance McCullers Jr., Eli Ankou, Chris Godwin, Johnny Damon, Allie LaForce, Joe Smith, and Jimmy Buffett-founded Save the Manatees Club.
