On January 10, 2015, Host Jackie Watson was on the red carpet for The Art of Elysium 8th Annual Heaven Gala, which took place the night before The Golden Globes. The 2015 visionary and creative force behind this year’s event was the highly recognized and pioneering performance artist Marina Abramović. The charity also recognized Amber Heard as its 2015 Spirit of Elysium recipient for her years of volunteerism and tireless fundraising efforts on our behalf. As always, the evening provided an unparalleled creative experience rooted in the mission and represented the spirit of our diverse artistic disciplines – Fashion, Fine Arts, Music and Theatre/Media Arts. Heaven is the organization’s largest annual fundraiser that supports the ongoing efforts, guaranteeing the growth and vitality of the organization for years to come and ensuring the ability to continue to deliver high quality arts experiences to over 40,000 medically fragile youth annually.
The Art of Elysium, a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization founded in 1997, encourages working actors, artists, fashion designers and musicians to voluntarily dedicate their time and talent to various communities in need of creativity and inspiration. We provide artistic workshops in the following disciplines: Fashion Design, Fine Arts, Music and Theatre/Media Arts.
