During February, the art gallery at The MAIN in Old Town Newhall will feature “Heartopia,” an art exhibition featuring selected works by multimedia artist and activist Jennifer Korsen.
In conjunction with the gallery, on Friday, February 9, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., the community is invited to The MAIN for a special art event and fundraiser supporting the “What’s In Your Heart” project, a platform created by Korsen to connect the community with charitable organizations to inspire creative expression through art.
Residents will enjoy art, refreshments and a live auction. The MAIN is located at 24266 Main Street, Newhall 91321.
“Heartopia” will feature Korsen’s new mixed media work as well as pieces from the artist’s private collection. Korsen is a lifelong creative and credits art for giving her life purpose as well as keeping her safe during times of turmoil and uncertainty. She is known best for her anatomical heart murals spray-painted on walls from Los Angeles to Oakland, Portland, Miami as well as other major U.S. cities.
At the fundraising event, attendees will have the chance to participate in a live and online auction and contribute to the evening’s “What’s in Your Heart” interactive installation by creating their own heart art as part of the collective.
The evening’s proceeds will go toward the “What’s in Your Heart Project,” which encourages the community to use art as a form of self-care to guide expression and human connection – one heart at a time.
The “What’s in Your Heart Project” has collaborated with charitable organizations such as City of Hope, Children’s Hospital, Saving Innocence, Junior Blind, and Teen Power Group and has been featured as an interactive installation at the Kidspace Museum.
