Free Arts Los Angeles has announced Free Arts’ Fun Day 2015, scheduled for Saturday, June 6, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Victorian, 2640 Main St., in Santa Monica. This annual fundraising event helps Free Arts bring hope and empowerment to abused, neglected, homeless and impoverished children by providing year-round creative arts programs led by positive adult volunteer mentors in safe, encouraging environments.

This year, Free Arts Los Angeles is proud to honor Los Angeles artist Lawrence C. Carroll with the 2015 Free Arts Volunteer Mentor of the Year Award. Upon moving to Los Angeles four years ago, Lawrence immediately connected with the mission of Free Arts, and has since spent a bulk of his time volunteering within the Free Arts organization to better serve the community.

“Having always been a creative child myself and utilizing art to express my feelings, I knew it was a natural relationship to become a volunteer. In the three years I’ve served as a volunteer, Free Arts has remained a wonderful outlet for me to continue being a creative child, and to connect with young people who are transitioning through life while enduring some extremely hard circumstances. I appreciate Free Arts so much for all the children and adults they support, including me.”

Additional honorees include a line up of notables in the local, national and international design industry, including: Art Swagger Los Angeles, Debra Haas of Herman Miller, Patrice Hironimus of Gensler, Angela Lee & Mark Bryant of Interior Architects Kimball Office’s Holly Rau and Mata Construction’s Anne Alexander.

Free Arts Fun Day sponsors include Team One, Battista Co, LLC, Mulholland Luggage, Letter Four, Blick Art Materials, California Press, Mobile Mural Lab, Otis School of Design, Hornburg Jaguar & Dylan’s Candy Bar.

Free Arts’ Fun Day 2015 will bring together individuals and families throughout Los Angeles for a day of music, art activities for all ages, art galleries, silent auction, various food trucks and two Dylan’s Candy Bars, refreshments and much more. Complimentary valet is provided and casual attire is recommended.
