Thank you & Happy New Year!
As 2014 comes to a close, here's the latest!
The paintings and oil on paper pieces are nearly completed and we are onto the next phase of planning for the exhibit! We will be meeting with my NYC gallery, Rare, at the beginning of January, to make plans for the exhibit in New York, Los Angeles and/or Miami, slated for May of 2015. Additionally, we will be working on sponsorships and partnerships and should have more details for you in the coming months. All in all, we are very excited to gear up for 2015, both to raise money for Kevin's reserve and to bring further awareness to the declining numbers of African lions.
And speaking of bringing awareness to the lions, there was a wonderful 60 Minutes piece last month on Kevin and his sanctuary. Not only did it showcase his reserve and extended family of 26 lions, but it also brought to light his work in exposing the canned lion hunting trade and the sinister side of the South African tourism industry. Here's a link to the story: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-lion-whisperer/
Thank you so much for all your support in making Art of the Pride possible. We are looking forward to completing this project in 2015 and can't wait to share with you our upcoming plans.
Much love to you all and the happiest of New Year's!
Suzanne & the Art of the Pride team
