Lee Brandon Christopher Studio, a small art studio with the audacity to Dream Big and connect artists and art lovers, will partner with renowned local artists Terrance Vann, Alim “YesterdayNite” Smith, Marilyn Bauman, Ric Conn, Nicole Kristina and many others. In conjunction with the University of Delaware’s school of fashion & art, we will feature the “Dream Big” Gala which will be a celebration of art, fashion, and scholarship in the heart of our community. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the University of Delaware’s art and fashion student organizations for additional education and enrichment opportunities. In addition, a portion of the proceeds will support artistic activities in the City of Wilmington by donating to several organizations that serve low-income families: Northeast Church of Christ, First State Church of Christ, and TeenSharp. The event is Oct 7, 2017.
