The Space for Art Foundation fundraiser on September 19, 2019, held at White Porch Gallery and R House (in the Wynwood art district of Miami Florida) was a spectacular showcase of space-themed original art and high-tech interactive art therapy techniques for pediatric cancer patients. The art show was curated by JonLouis Gonzales of White Porch Gallery, which exhibited his work and several others, including E. Lee Wilson, Jr.
Space for Art Foundation was the brainchild of artist and veteran NASA astronaut Nicole Stott. She and a group of talented and dedicated team members developed a way to increase awareness for both art therapy for severely ill children and the wonders of art in space, and about space.
It was a magical evening, as the gourmet food was sampled and the libations flowed, while the crowd viewed the artwork. They were also entertained by young dancers and the amazing art therapy technology was displayed and experienced.
