May 7, 2016 – St. Jude’s big event — An Affair of the Art – was spectacular. This sixth annual event was classy and well attended – as is fitting for such a worthwhile cause.

St. Jude: An Affair of the Art - Featured Sculptures

The “Celebration of Life” sculpture exhibit features a collection of three-dimensional, five foot sculptures created by Dorit Schwartz. Each sculpture is painted by a different artist, based on their personal experiences portraying a “celebration of life.”

I, along with artists Michael Godard and Beti Kristof, were honored to be among the chosen sculptures for the gala at Wynn Encore in Las Vegas.

The remaining 2016 Collection was made available through the silent auction. The collection is available at StJude.org/LVgala.

The Things We Do For Love by A.D. Cook by 2015 - St. Jude sculpture

It’s been a long journey with my statue “The Things We Do for Love…”. It’s seen a lot of activity from its initial creation to the “Affair of the Art” gala.

Over 300 art aficionados gathered to support the lifesaving work of  St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, featuring an evening of fine art, food and cocktails, plus a special St. Jude patient story and exclusive opportunity to bid on unique works of art to benefit St. Jude.

Special thanks to everyone who hosted my St. Jude sculpture and shared it with your world: Lamborghini Las Vegas, Audi of Henderson, Underground Revolution, William Carr Gallery and Siena Italian Authentic Trattoria.

St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent, and we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
