On Monday night, 500 supporters of Publicolor came out to Martin Luther King Jr. High School for the organization's Stir, Splatter + Roll event. All of the night's proceeds go to Publicolor's scholarship fund.
Publicolor is a not-for-profit organization that uses color, collaboration, design, and painting processes to get students involved in education and their communities.
The night began with colorful cocktails and interactive painting stations led by designers in the interior design and fashion industries like Jamie Drake, Nicole Miller, and Vicente Wolf. Along with students, designers created one-of-a-kind works of art. The night continued with dinner and ceremony filled with decor that supported the event's art theme: light sculptures made from extension cords, hula-hoops, and colorful light bulbs; Benjamin Moore paint cans filled with rollers, painters tape, and brushes acted as centerpieces; and orange and pink balloons lined the walls in the school's large gymnasium where the dinner was held. CNN's Soledad O'Brien and volunteers from Estee Lauder were honored and stories from students involved with the program were told. The night was full of hope, fun, and of course, color!
