Heliotrope Foundation – Pearly's Beauty Shop
Auction Ends: Jun 10, 2016 11:59 PM EDT

Online Auction Extended to June 10!

Pearly's Beauty Shop is unlike any event you've ever been to.  Part exhibition, part live auction, part dance party, and part pop-up artist-run beauty salon.  Nails done by a painter?  Hair diorama by a sculptor?  Makeup by a conceptual artist?  Performance-artist paraffin-dip?  No matter your aesthetic desire, Pearly's has you covered.  Artists will be partnered with salon technicians to recreate their designs; you'll find salon stations throughout the party and revelry all around.

All event proceeds benefit The Heliotrope Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Brooklyn-based artist Swoon.  Heliotrope supports three core projects that use the arts to strengthen communities:

  • Braddock Tiles: artist-run ceramics workshop located in a formerly abandoned church in North Braddock, Pennsylvania.
  • New Orleans Music Box: an ever-evolving musical village that celebrates New Orleans' rich musical and architectural history.
  • Konbit Shelter: low-cost, sustainable, disaster-resistant homes & community spaces in Komye, Haiti.
