Support “Kelsey Cares” In Fostering The Arts As “The 4 Year Anniversary Block Party” In Lake Park Kicks Off

When AJ Brockman opened the Brewhouse Gallery, in 2014, it was easy to understand his concept – show original artwork from local artists and serve beer. But is was SO much more than that!  This visionary saw it as a “brew house for ideas” as well as craft beers and artwork…a common gathering place for an entire community!  As we head into the fourth phase of our grassroots effort, “The Back Alley Mural Project”, we ask our friends, family and business cohorts to help make it a success.  The Rickie Report shares the details of the next phase and the continuing efforts of AJ and his not-for-profit, Kelsey Cares.  We look to fellow visual artists, performing artists, and their audiences to get involved! The Rickie Report is proud to be part of this effort!

(DETAILS  TO FOLLOW)

 

This video link will tell you more about the whole story and the continuing efforts of AJ and his not-for-profit, Kelsey Cares:

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/leaving-our-mark-in-lake-park-a-mural-project-4-community#/

 

 

Revitalizing a community through a huge ( 900 foot) outdoor mural (one of the largest continuous murals in South Florida!) and launching The Lake Park Arts District!

OUR MISSION

“Funding art, theater, music, film, and cultural development through community outreach by providing subsidies for productions, events, artists and musicians to carry out their mission.”

 

 

 

Introducing Kelsey Cares. After multiple community projects to revitalize the Town of Lake Park through the arts, specifically our renowned mural projects, we are now furthering our efforts through receiving our 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. Founded in 1919, the original Kelsey City (now Lake Park) was a cultural hub and we are continuing Harry Kelsey’s vision by cultivating The Lake Park Arts District. Kelsey Cares is Funding art, theater, music, film, and cultural development through community outreach by providing subsidies for productions, events, artists and musicians to carry out their mission.

 

 

The Back Alley Mural Project

Thanks to the local community the launch of The Kelsey Theater has been a growing success, and even given birth to what we now call The Lake Park Arts District. That left us wondering, “What else can we do to make Lake Park great?” The answer is to utilize the only real estate we have left in a project that benefits local artists and the community alike.

 

 

 

 

What We Need & What You Get

So, we need to fill this wall with eye-popping color that will make The Lake Park Arts District visible from outer space! Okay, maybe that’s a bit unrealistic, but we still want to beautify this town with public art. The extent to which the wall gets painted depends on how much money we raise.

100% of all the funds raised will be going towards supplies, rental equipment, permitting and actually paying these artists because artwork is WORK. Once we reach our initial goal any additional money raised will be put into escrow and applied to the next round of muralists until we are able to paint the entire 700 building (pretty much a city block) every six months. After that, we start again right back at the beginning so there is always fresh imagery to inspire our community.

 

 

Now to the good part… What you get in return for your support! We have a bunch of great perks at all different contribution levels, the majority of which center around “The 4yr Anniversary Block Party” scheduled for May 12, 2018. This will serve as our official wrap party and unveiling of the finished mural. Food trucks, vendors, craft beer, live music, art demonstrations, and much more will be going down as we put the finishing touches on this masterpiece the day of. Not a local? No problem, many of our perks are easily shipped so you can help support this project from anywhere in the world. At the very least, come party with us at this free event and see what’s happening at The Lake Park Arts District for yourself!

It is a tile-topped coffee table painted with an image of the family’s famous museum in New York City. Further, as a tribute to the work in the collection of the Jupiter Island Arts Council, the Lighthouse ArtCenter will exhibit original Highwaymen pieces as well as the celebrated Florida scenic oils from A.

According to curator Janeen Mason, “We are honored by this opportunity to share the creative spirit of our gifted neighbors who enjoy homes just a stone’s throw from the Lighthouse ArtCenter. To see through the eyes of another, to recognize meaningful art, whether of great monetary value, collectible value, sentimental value, or simply curiosities that make you scratch your head in wonder… This is an experience you won’t want to miss.”

Nancy Politsch, Executive Director of the Lighthouse ArtCenter, says, “We hope all of Palm Beach and Martin counties will make time to visit the gallery while we have this inspiring collection of extraordinary art. Through their gracious philanthropic gesture, these families are sharing a look at their personal commitment to the humanities. Now more than ever it’s imperative we celebrate their support.”

"Jupiter Lighthouse" by Oscar Rojas

“Jupiter Lighthouse” by Oscar Rojas

Oscar Rojas has been painting for as long as he can remember. His paintings are classical and dynamic. He loves depicting the beautiful and lush Florida landscape and plants on large spectacular canvases. He has a portrait series of well know tennis players and a number of large horse paintings which he likes to paint without a model. Each work of art flows and there are differences between his paintings because he does not seek a style.

 

"Bamboo" by Oscar Rojas

“Bamboo” by Oscar Rojas

For Oscar, painting is not an objective, it is to give life. He says, “ the day you are satisfied means that you have successfully dominated the art and have taken a path that was to your liking and comfort. There is an endless search in the domain of colors and each work of art is different from the previous one. They are like people each totally different and they speak for themselves”. Oscar has no set goals…it is an endless story.

 

 

"Banana Plant" by Oscar Rojas
