Event: Wednesday, October 3 from 5:30pm to 8pm

“Life Pieces To Masterpieces men are warriors of HOPE fighting – knowing we will win!”

Join Life Pieces To Masterpieces for a night celebrating their art, their organization, and most of all: their incredible boys and young men. From performances, including “We’re Gonna Win” written by LPTM Apprentices and staff, to the unveiling of the Art by Life Pieces Apparel Line, to the beautiful stitched paintings up on the walls for sale, there will be plenty of opportunity to connect, laugh, and share.

The colorful acrylic-on-canvas collage paintings displayed in this exhibit are created by Life Pieces Apprentices. Young Apprentices collaboratively create art masterpieces through the unique process of designing and cutting images out of canvas and stitching layers of acrylic painted canvas onto each other. Each masterpiece has a theme based on our Apprentices’ lives, dreams, challenges, and goals, or on the Life Pieces curriculum. Each masterpiece is accompanied by a story in the form of poem, prose, or essay. Learn about these powerful stories as you enjoy delicious refreshments and our live jazz trio.
