Molly’s House is the dream project of a young girl named Molly Sharkey. At 12, she was diagnosed with chronic myelocytic leukemia. For the next 6 years Molly and her family traveled the US to find treatment for her rare type of leukemia. In some cities they were lucky to find a Ronald McDonald House where the family could stay and be close to Molly in the hospital. In other cities there was nowhere convenient for the family to stay.

 

 

 

This experience prompted Molly’s dream of building a house in her home town, Stuart, Florida, and make it available to any family who had a loved one being treated for critical care at Martin Medical Center. Molly died in May of 1992 at age 18,  Since then, her family and friends raised funds to build her dream house.  Since 1996, Molly’s House has provided a warm and caring environment for patients and families in a medical crisis. For over 20 years, Molly’s House has provided a home away from home to almost 20,000 people while they or a loved one were receiving medical treatment. Our Adopt a Family program subsidizes families who are unable to make a donation toward their accommodations. Molly’s House is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for our guests. We are staffed by volunteers and a night manager staff, a housekeeper, an operations manager, and a CEO.

Kobi Levi’s “wearable art” shoe designs are revered for their whimsical nature and masterful craftsmanship. His creations transfer the essence of daily objects such as bananas and birds, cheerleaders, chewing gum and coffee as well as fantasy and glamor – think Disney characters and mother/daughter duos – into the shape of shoes. Celebrities including Lady Gaga (Double Boots), Whoopi Goldberg, and Fergie (Chewing Gum) have been seen wearing his designs. The Kobi Levi “pop up boutique” at the Rosen Museum Gallery in Boca Raton will feature 30 unique pairs of hand-made, custom shoes.

“My inspiration for a new design originates from a simple concept or image and then the shoe becomes my canvas,” Kobi Levi explains. “My work blends the boundaries of art, design and fashion, as I relate to aspects from all three fields. I am thrilled to bring my visually humoristic footwear to the U.S. and excited to be launching two brand new designs at the Levis JCC!”

About Kobi Levi:

 

Design and shoes have been Kobi Levi’s passion since his childhood in Tel Aviv, Israel. After his graduation in 2001 from Bezalel Academy of Arts & Design, Jerusalem, Kobi Levi worked as a freelance footwear designer. During this time, he learned the trade secrets of shoe development and craftsmanship, while spending his leisure time designing unique, creative and innovative shoe styles, which challenge the standard definitions of design, art and fashion to create a niche of their own. It was in 2010 when Kobi’s creations began to receive attention from around the world, including a spot in Lady Gaga’s “Born this Way” music video. The demand for Kobi Levi’s wearable art exploded and in July 2011 Kobi opened his studio in Tel Aviv, offering his original designs for sale. In the studio he creates, develops and produces limited editions from his designs. All pairs are made by hand from high-quality materials.

Wine Cellar” 23′ x10′, mural

In this wine, dessert and coffee cafe area it feels as if you are looking into a wine cellar in the next room. From viewing the wall straight on, in the center you will see the exact location of the wine barrels. The illusion created is that from entering from either side, the angle turns towards you …and you can walk right in!

 

 

 

 

 

An Impressionistic landscape artist, Dawn Evans has painted exteriors of buildings, interior walls, niches, ceilings and entire rooms for businesses and residences. Her passion to paint is to capture the crisp, bright colors and light of nature: from tropical beaches and oceans, to vineyards in Tuscany, to a field of flowers or to a mountain peak.

Over 20 years of education and experience enables Dawn to work in ANY style necessary to create custom designs for her clients.

“Toscano Vineyard”, 28′ x 10′ mural

 

The concept is to create an atmosphere that you are on a balcony overlooking a villa and vineyard. The distant mountains, the rolling hills, a villa, the contrast of the white balusters and red poppy fields are typical of Tuscany.

 

 

Dawn has brought everything from convincing faux finishing to whimsical murals for children’s rooms to trompe l’oeil murals nation-wide. Travel for on-site work or shipping art is always available . Many clients along the way have become great friends and the artist feels it is truly a blessing to share her gift.

The heart of the Florence,Italy is the largest marble church, the Duomo, shown here with a cloudy sky and distant mountains.

 

 

 

With over 20 years in the business, any style of art and any size can be created to meet the needs of the client. Dawn Evans Art specializes in large scenic murals. Painting an entire room or building has a massive effect on a once-blank space. Other popular murals styles include ocean, gardens, faux finishes, faux marble, children’ themes, to name a few. Custom canvas paintings may be also be commissioned.
DawnEvansVeniceVase6 flower

“Venice Vase and Floral” 3′ x 9′ mural
