Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) July 25, 2014
On the heels of the ESPY Awards, where several of the leading athletes gathered to be honored for excellence in sports, Pro Player Insiders teamed up with 3P Media Partners to launch the Athletes for Art Renaissance Tour (“AART”). Leading athletes lent their support and artistic influence and showcased their original paintings at the W Hollywood, located in Hollywood, California.
AART’s mission is to break the myth that a person is either an athlete or an artist by showcasing artwork from all athletes in a variety of mediums. The event highlighted the creations of Vernon Davis, Robert McClain, Not Your Muse, Ramon Buchanan, and Alana Heard.
Melissa Mahler, Founder and Editor-In-Chief of Pro Player Insiders is excited about showcasing athlete's art and helping to break the myth that athletes are one dimensional.
“AART highlights our commitment to showing who athletes are outside of the game and making a positive impact by sharing their stories,” said Mahler. “We know that AART will be a destination for all things art and sport.”
“It’s a great opportunity to share the paintings from some of the leading athletes,” said Jumoke Mendez Founder of 3P Media Partners. “We hope that we can raise awareness in the community for these and other athlete-artists.”
During the event, McClain, Not Your Muse, Buchanan and Heard showed their unique style by each painting a letter of the AART logo. The audience was treated to this live performance and by the end of the night the original painting was complete.
Kandy Magazine’s 2014 Krush of the Year, Jessica Hall, hosted the event and was joined by many of the Kandy girls and Editor-in-Chief Ron Kucher as the magazine celebrated its Sweet 60.
Among the athletes and celebrities in attendance included: Antonio Cromaterie of the Arizona Cardinals, Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers, Snowboarder Jamie Anderson, Cliff Avery of the Seattle Seahawks, Doug Christie, a former NBA star, Marcus Cromartie of the San Diego Chargers, Austin Pettis of the St. Louis Rams, Mariano Mendoza Heavy Weight Boxer, Robert McClain of the Atlanta Falcons, Tyree Washington, Olympic Gold medalist, Patrick Chung of the New England Patriots, Terrell Owens former NFL Star, Prince Amukamara of the NY Giants, former Super Bowl Champ Darrel Reid, Julius Thomas and Duke Iheancho of the Denver Broncos, Lindsey Berg Volleyball Olympian, Chris Carter of the Pittsburgh Steelers, former Carolina Panther DeSaun Foster, Billy Davis, two-time Super Bowl Champ, former Oakland Raider Rashawn Jackson, actor Brett Stimley from Transformers, Porsha Coleman from Hollywood Today, actor Roger Cross, Caya Hefner Model, Graham Bunn Reality TV Star, Bob Guiney from The Today Show and The Bachelor and Music artist Christina Millian.
