Saratoga Springs, NY: While plans of holding annual fundraisers and events continue to change, local nonprofit Beyond My Battle has opted to not only bring its big event online but partner with legendary folk music venue Caffe Lena to make the experience extra special. Art with Heart and Hope, now in its second year, is an exhibition celebrating the herapeutic power of art for those living with medical conditions and caregivers.
On Saturday, May 30th at 8 pm EST, you can attend the show from the comfort of your home by watching it live online from Caffè Lena's YouTube channel. The experience is free to enjoy and leaves an impression on all.
At a time when the world is gaining perspective of the daily challenges for those living with illnesses and their caregivers, we are also witnessing a mass gravitation toward the arts, as they provide a sense of peace and presence. Art With Heart and Hope fuses these societal awakenings by delivering an experience that shares the sights, sounds, and stories of those using art to cope and communicate.
