Luca Luca to display work of VSA arts artists

Luca Luca has selected VSA arts as the recipient of its first ever holiday fundraiser this winter season. Luca Luca boutiques in New York, Chicago, Dallas, Palm Beach, and Bal Harbour will hang the work of six emerging VSA arts artists in their stores and donate a portion of store proceeds to VSA arts to continue its work of increasing access to the arts for people with disabilities.

The stores will also conduct a silent auction at the registers for the artwork through December 25, and proceeds will go directly to the artists, helping them further their careers.

"Luca Luca generously approached VSA arts about being the beneficiary of this campaign," said Soula Antoniou, president of VSA arts. "We're thrilled at the opportunity and exposure Luca Luca is providing to our emerging artists, as well as their generosity at this time. VSA arts programs touch children, teenagers, and adults with programs in inclusive arts education and showcase the accomplishments of professional artists with disabilities."

"Luca Luca believes the best gift this holiday season is the gift of giving back," said Yildiz Blackstone, president of Luca Luca. "We're proud to support the work that VSA arts does, and the silent auction allows our clientele to support emerging artists with disabilities at an important time in their career."

Each store will have a booklet by the register displaying the artwork of all of the locations, allowing customers to bid on artwork in stores other than their own. Although the silent auction ends on December 25, stores will display the artwork until January 3.

VSA arts exhibits the work of artists ages 16-25 every fall at the Smithsonian Institution's S. Dillon Ripley Center in Washington, D.C.Luca Luca selected the work of six artists who were past participants of this program for this year's campaign. The artists on display include: David Castro of Visalia, California; Isaac Caruso of Phoenix, Arizona; Katrina Cathcart of Warren, Rhode Island; Ryan McDonnell of Northampton, Massachusetts; Eileen M. Ray of Louisville, Kentucky; Merlin Strivelli of Weaverville, North Carolina.

VSA arts is an international nonprofit organization founded in 1974 by Ambassador Jean Kennedy Smith to create a society where people with disabilities learn through, participate in, and enjoy the arts.

LUCA LUCA was founded in 1991 by designer Luca Orlandi, launching a collection of unique infusion of classic Italian craftsmanship and an appealing modern edge. Appealing to a worldwide clientele, LUCA LUCA has earned a reputation for sexy silhouettes, exquisite colors, and the use of the finest fabrics.
