The Creative Coalition hosted a gallery exhibit of portraits from the Art & Soul project at the Library of Congress. The gallery exhibit, sponsored by Hachette Filipacchi Media U.S. (HFM U.S.) and Sony, is a collection of portraits of performing artists by Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Brian Smith.
Art & Soul is the cornerstone of The Creative Coalition’s arts advocacy campaign to focus national attention on the need to secure federal funding and support for the arts.
The portraits, of artists such as Samuel Jackson, Alyssa Milano, Adrian Grenier, Zooey Deschanel, Kerry Washington, Gina Gershon and Anne Hathaway, are accompanied by handwritten personal testimonials from each individual, expressing the positive impact art has had on their lives.
