“Thank you for what you're sharing.” Academy Award Winner, Martin Landau
Hollywood, CA & Provo, UT (PRWEB) March 04, 2015
Still With You, Inc. introduced its distinctive art to 2015 Academy Award nominees and filmmakers over Oscar® weekend in Hollywood at the L'Ermitage Beverly Hills.
Artist Kristen Lamb’s designs received praise from multiple celebrities. Keith Stanfield (Selma, Short Term 12) commented, "These statues are beautiful; my friend’s dog just got hit by a car and this will be a cool thing for him." In an email, Michael Pena (Teens Wanna Know) exclaimed, "I absolutely love your guys' work!"
One of the most touching moments of the day occurred between Kristen Lamb and Academy Award Winner, Martin Landau, who acknowledged that it must have been difficult to lose someone. He went on to say, “Thank you for what you're sharing.” The exchange left Lamb in tears.
Emotional and moving, the art was a distinct addition to the event. “We haven’t seen anything like this at the event before,” commented one event staffer.
Still With You began as a form of artistic “therapy” for Kristen. Following her husband Rob’s tragic death in a plane crash, she turned her talents to designing sculptures depicting undying love. She never expected to share the designs of her grief at the 2015 GBK Academy Awards Celebrity fundraiser and Gift Lounge.
The widowed mother of five originally intended to soothe her grief by designing statues representing her husband’s undying love and connection to her following his death. Soon, people began requesting she craft figures representing their loss. Kristen's first creation, Eternal Embrace, represents her eternal love relationship with her late husband Rob. As Kristen realized her art could help others, she founded Still With You.
