The Studio at Living Opportunities annual furnARTure—is a signature fundraising event where local fine artwork, furniture and other creative items are presented for auction with all funds supporting the Studio and its programs.
The Studio provides a lively hub of creativity and connection for people with developmental and intellectual disabilities to enjoy and participate in art, music and drama in the community.
Last year Studio artist Nicholas Hiti brought the house down with an emotional rendition of “What a Wonderful World” as Studio Director Dan Mish accompanied him on the guitar.
Vibrant scenes from The Studio played in a video behind them, creating a moving representation of the creativity and connection The Studio brings to our community.
“FurnARTure is going to be the best memory ever for me!” said Nicholas. “What I loved the most was everyone standing and clapping at the end because it made me feel proud of myself. My favorite part of singing is making people happy.”
For Nicholas, and all the guests at furnARTure, the afternoon was a joyful reminder of the power of art to bring people, and communities, together.
Plan to attend this year’s special afternoon of live music, gourmet food, beer, and wine, all included with your ticket purchase.
