last march while visiting pulse art fair, i came across the projectart booth. i met the founder, adarsh alphons, and we immediately got to chatting about the importance of art in our daily lives. when i told him about my side hustle, he said i was the strangest person he met at the fair. of course, i took this as a major compliment and we soon after began working together on an event idea called the artprom. although this event didn't work out at that time, i'm confident it will someday soon. this summer i was honored when adarsh asked me to be a part of the organization's junior board. being involved with projectart has been an incredible experience in which i've met and become friends with some of the most diverse, most interesting and most insanely passionate people. i'm thrilled to be a part of an organization and a community that believes art is a right. and i'm excited to partner with projectart and heritage auctions on an event next week -- swing by to learn more about our mission, meet members of the board and have some free drinks and an art tour:
