According The Warren Center’s Art And Music Gala Co-Chair Ben Smithee,
“As a member of The Friends of The Warren Center we are excited to be bringing a new event to the Dallas charity scene — The Art & Music Gala, Synthesia. The event will include five renowned musicians who will compose an original composition inspired by this year’s theme of ‘Synesthesia’ – a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. Each composition will then be delivered to five world-class artists to create five one of a kind works of art – purely inspired by the compositions. The result is a night of celebration and performance where each original composition and its inspired work of art will be unveiled and performed live at the Gala. Each completely unique piece of art and original manuscript/recording of the compositions that inspired will be auctioned off live.
“This has always been a vision of mine to incorporate art and music into a one of a kind event by offering guests a unique experience. We will be announcing our headliner (think Dave Matthews Band), artists and musicians throughout the fall at our pre-Art & Music events.
“As a resource for the Dallas area since 1968, The Warren Center has provided over 15,000 families with needed tools, including individualized therapy for their child’s developmental delay, critical information and resources on developmental milestones, and guidance as parents become advocates for their child’s future. Guests will enjoy a cocktail reception, seated dinner, live entertainment, silent and live auction, creative gallery experiences with local artists, jewelry makers, fashion designers, musicians, children’s art area and more.
“The Art & Music Gala, Synthesia, will be held on Friday, February 24, from 6:00 p.m. -10:30 p.m. at the Southside on Lamar Ballroom (1409 S. Lamar St, Dallas, TX 75215). Table Sponsorships begin at $2,500 with underwriting opportunities beginning at $2,500. For more information, please contact Tara Null at 972.490.9055 or 214.709.8901.
“We hope the city of Dallas will embrace this brand new event and help us support our artists, musicians and The Warren Center’s mission.”
