Join "The Celebration Of Life" At Downtown Summerlin On March 12
Downtown Summerlin® is pleased announce its year-two partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® to unveil its 2016 “Celebration of Life” sculptures and kick-off spring with the arrival of the Easter Bunny and Spring Festival! The festivities take place at noon on Saturday, March 12.
The not-to-be-missed community event includes kid-centric activities like a petting zoo, a spring themed social media photo backdrop, relay games, flower crown making, umbrella painting, hop scotch, cookie decorating, music and more.
The “Celebration of Life” exhibit features a collection of ten three-dimensional, five-foot sculptures created by Summerlin-based artist Dorit Schwartz. Each sculpture is painted by a variety of artists including Michael Godard, Vladimir Kush and Alexander Nechita, among others. The artists portray a “celebration of life” based on their personal experiences. Several of the artists have personal connections to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Once the sculptures are unveiled, many will serve as permanent fixtures at Downtown Summerlin for all to enjoy.
Local children will also have the chance to share words of inspiration and well-being for the children of St. Jude by leaving a message on the St. Jude Wishing Wall. Children can stop by the St. Jude table at the event to write their message to the 7800+ children being treated at St. Jude each year. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent, and they won’t give up.
The event is free and open to the public. Paid photo packages with the Easter Bunny will also be available for purchase through March 26. For a complete list of details, visit www.downtownsummerlin.com.
