The ART of GIVING World Premiere The ART of GIVING officially launches to amplify awareness for the causes championed by the world's most iconic Artists

Los Angeles California, Wednesday, February 5th, 2020 – Purely a project fueled by passion, The ART of GIVING officially launched February 1st 2020, to showcase the charitable causes championed by the world’s most renowned Artists in the realms of music, entertainment and fine art.

Created by Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Matt Sorum (legendary drummer of Guns N’ Roses, The Cult and Velvet Revolver), and award-winning music portrait photographer Mark Maryanovich, The ART of GIVING is a charitable proceeds project featuring photo shoots with legendary Artists, and brief video interviews based on the causes they support.

Each Installment culminates in capturing a one of a kind portrait signed by the Artist. The autographed limited edition print is being auctioned via Charitybuzz.com, with all net proceeds donated directly to a charity chosen by the Artist. The video interviews are being broadcast online at www.theartofgiving.art with a link to the Charitybuzz auction page.

“With the world, the way things are going, you know, people gotta get out there and pitch in, and help just make the world a better place ... We’ve been so blessed, playing music all of our lives, and meeting so many people all over the world, that it’s sort of a natural fit for us to just say, hey man, how can we help?” said Co~Creator Matt Sorum.

Essentially, The ART of GIVING provides a unique platform to showcase the worthy causes championed by the world’s most celebrated Artists, providing fans access to their favorite icons, with a simplified method to join them in supporting their chosen charities.

The interview is live at www.theartofgiving.art and the one-of-one signed print is available for auction at Charitybuzz.com from February 18th to March 4th 2020. All net proceeds from the autographed print are donated directly to Mr. Gibbon’s charity of choice, Adopt The Arts Foundation.
