Persona Non Grata Art Initiative

Last Friday I attended the Persona Non Grata Art Initiative . The event supports Rachel's Home, a home for children orphaned by the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Lesotho, Africa. My lovely friend Stephanie Vizi was there earlier this year and gave each of the orphans a camera to use.  These aren't just photos of life in Lesotho but they allow the audience to see the orphan's lives through their eyes.  

Adrian Wu also showed off a couple of pieces that were inspired by these photographs. There were also the most delicious cupcakes from We Bake in Heels with a custom Persona Non Grata Art Initiative logo on them. It was so good that I finished it before I could snap a picture. David's Tea was there with samples of Tropicalia which I HAVE to go out and get because it was just mind blowing.  If you want to try a cold tea that tastes like pina colada, is sweet enough without having to add sugar, and caffeine free, Tropicalia is the one.

Anyways, hope you all had a lovely weekend!
