Have you always been fascinated by pop artist Andy Warhol? Andy took the art world by storm in the 1960's, and has influenced countless artists of all mediums. The Carpatho-Rusyn Society: Dallas Chapter cordially invites you to join us as we celebrate Warhol's 90th birthday. You will learn about Andy's Rusyn ethnicity, all the while painting one of his works. Dallas artist Jerrel Sustaita will lead attendees through the creative process, culminating in your own finished product to take home. Art supplies will be provided by Mr. Sustaita, complimentary snacks will be served, and a ticketed wine bar will be available. We will also celebrate the third anniversary of the founding of the Dallas chapter of the Carpatho-Rusyn Society, a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization. We invite attendees to share complimentary birthday cake and festivities with us. Learn more about the Carpatho-Rusyn Society at www.carpathorusynsociety.org.
