HONOREES :

Wendy Abrams

Wendy Abrams is an environmental activist and founder of Cool Globes, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness of climate change.  Cool Globes originated as a project stemming from the Clinton Global Initiative in 2006 and has grown internationally, traveling to 16 cities on four continents and translated into nine languages.

In 2018, TACHP proudly partnered with Abrams to exhibit her latest conceptual project, Invisible Words.  After several years of purchasing the cardboard signs made by homeless people, Abrams put together a powerful installation, revealing the humanity behind the signs themselves.  Her efforts do more than shed light on the problems of homelessness, she hopes to bring to the forefront the need for understanding and empathy.

Abrams and her husband Jimmy have lived and raised their four children in Highland Park and are strong supporters of all forms of art in the community.

Jacqueline Chilow:

BENEFIT CO-CHAIRS: Marla Gilbert and Deborah Hall


EXHIBITION OPENINGS: Solo exhibition of artist Bert Leveille | enLIGHTen

Bert Leveille will create site specific art installations exploring consciousness.  Bert implements an full experiential component to her work, using light and sound to intensify the experience. “Streaming reflections” includes large-scale paintings which complete the stage’s transformation into an “alternate” world where the dancing figure seems to flow through light.

enLIGHTen is a group exhibition exploring how is light defined in reference to art? Some artists manipulate the elements of light through shades of colors, overlapping, and shaping, creating the illusion of light. Other artists use the idea of consciousness as a vehicle for bringing light into their art and their surroundings. The exhibition reflects the many values of LIGHT both literally and spiritually.
