Park West Gallery artist Autumn de Forest this weekend offered her artistic gift to help others by donating the artwork “Universe of Love” to the “This Party Saves Lives” event sponsored by This Bar Saves Lives, an organization with a mission of eradicating hunger and providing a packet of the emergency food supplement “Plumpy Nut” to a child in need for every one of their bars sold.

The young artist shared the stage with actress Kristen Bell, one of the founders of This Bar Saves Lives, and Dax Shepard. Autumn’s art was auctioned with proceeds going to the charity.

The event also celebrated innovative people and organizations that are helping to alleviate hunger and nutrition issues and celebrate brands in different industries that are making a positive impact on the world.

    What a talented and giving young lady. We are privileged to own one of her creations which is prominently displayed in our house. It always elicits great praise from our guests. What a delight to see her maturing and always giving. We consider it a real honour to have met her in person at a Park West function at the Ford Hotel in Detroit. Paul & Carroll Flood.
