The Phoenix Dream Center is a non-profit organization, with a goal to restore faith and hope to at-risk youth, the homeless, and needy families around the valley. This year AZ Foothills partnered with the Phoenix Dream Center to create a place of refuge for girls ages 18-30, who have been rescued from human trafficking and sex slavery. It was chosen as an alternative to the annual show house, in favor of making a difference and supporting a cause. Ten designers from around the city were asked to volunteer their time and resources, to make this project a success. Vallone Design, located in Scottsdale, was chosen to be one of the designers.
Vallone Design contacted Bonner David Galleries, inviting us to be a part of this project, by donating a piece for the room. Through the gracious donation of artist, Liz Tran, we were able to contribute. The cheerful, uplifting nature of Tran’s work, coupled with the innocent themes and vibrant colors, made her a desirable addition to the decor of the room. The piece chosen by Tran, entitled “Lift,” has significant meaning. In a house meant to lift up young women, challenged by difficult lives, the piece is certain to bring a sense of restored hope and tranquility. Tran said of her choice, “For some reason Lift stands out to me as the correct piece for the project. I hope it helps with creating healing energy in the house.”
