David “Lebo” Le Batard is supporting the next generation of artistic talent as the signature artist for the annual RedEye art fundraiser.

The exhibition takes place July 15 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The event will showcase today’s emerging talents in all forms of art, including live music, film, fashion, dance, body art, video games, and spoken word performances.

RedEye benefits ArtServe, an award-winning non-profit that develops programs to support at-risk youth, underserved populations, and local artists to create vibrant and economically viable communities.

“Keeping art relevant in the community and being able to use art to make real-life positive changes in people’s lives…is a big part of my mission as an artist,” Lebo says. “Part of the many benefits of being in the Park West family is that it frees me up to do more things like this.”

Lebo will display a collection of some of his newest works and his unique line of clothing. The artist also designed collector’s cups for the event’s inaugural Shipyard & South Beach Beer Garden.

Those who purchase a VIP ticket will receive a signature gift featuring a unique Lebo design along with perks like complimentary parking, food, and drinks.

ArtServe CEO Jaye Abbate says this year’s event theme is “untamed,” challenging artists to break the norms and unleash their creative visions.

“Guests will go on an artistic safari, roaming from room to room as they encounter something unexpected at every turn,” Abbate said in a written release. “Visitors can let loose and get wild as they experience a sensory-exploding, underground art happening.”

Lebo, the innovator of Postmodern Cartoon Expressionism, has loaned his talents to a plethora of brands and companies, including Norwegian Cruise Line, Lululemon, Harley-Davidson, Google, and Ferrari. The artist also dedicates his time and talent to supporting charitable causes and animal welfare organizations.
