On a crisp mountain evening last autumn, beneath a silken sky, a constellation of artists came together to both create and celebrate a shared moment of beauty. There was a forest of bottles of rich red wine; there were happy, curly-tailed bandit dogs eager to pilfer unattended hors d’oeuvres; and there was Bela: a princess, a rock star, a pretty girl in a pretty dress with an easy, open smile and eyes that stared straight through you.
One of the greatest pleasures of being human is recognizing how we all move through our lives experiencing the same world in as many varied ways as there are souls across the planet. Bela is one model viewed a medley of different ways, depicted by a medley of different extraordinary talents. Come see her for yourself. Come celebrate the Bela Project. ~Shana Abé, New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author
