As your calendar fills up with seasonal festivities, there’s one event you should pencil in: Easterseals Art & Soul.

The annual event showcases one-of-a-kind artworks, giving guests the opportunity to take home original pieces created by local artists and Easterseals clients through the A.R.T. (Artistic Realization Technologies) Program, which provides hands-on creative expression for children and adults with limited use of their arms and hands.

Set for 6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 11, this year's event returns after going virtual in 2020 and brings the yearly auction and raffle guests have come to love, plus food from Taziki’s and signature drinks from Petit & Keet to the Easterseals Adult Center for Training & Wellness (CTW) at 14901 Cantrell Road. There will also be an online silent auction.

This year's featured artist is Justin Lively (pictured above), a 22-year-old from Maumelle who has been coming to the Easterseals adult day center since 2019. He's also a huge Razorbacks fan and has a goal to one day live independently.

Easterseals Arkansas is a nonprofit providing services to help Arkansans with disabilities live more independently. Proceeds from the event will go toward the A.R.T. Program and other Easterseals Arkansas educational and therapy programs serving thousands of children and adults across the state.
