Art League Houston says
Art League Houston is thrilled to announce the 25th anniversary of the Healing Art program and invites the public to celebrate at our annual benefit and community party, Peace, Love, and MARTY: A Montrose Art Party, on Friday, April 24, 6-9 p.m.

Join Art League Houston in honoring artist Patrick Palmer, who established the remarkable Healing Art program in 1990 at the height of the AIDS crisis.

“This program is highly personal for me. When I began it, I just wanted to help my friends, and anyone who was struggling. The AIDS crisis hit close to home, and I felt like something needed to be done. It is so important for all people, to have a creative outlet, and so often people living with HIV or AIDS do not have the ability to go out and gather supplies. Without this program, many participants might never have made art.” –Patrick Palmer, artist and founder, Healing Arts program

This year’s MARTY is 1960s themed—tie-dye and sky high go-go boots highly encouraged! The event will feature live music by DJ Stephanie Saint Sanchez, delectable bites from Revival Market, beer from Saint Arnold Brewing Company, and special 1960s-inspired libations.

A selection of affordable artwork by Healing Art artists will be for sale in the Main Gallery, as well as an exciting silent auction! A portion of the artwork proceeds will help ensure the continuation of this vital program.
