VIP Opening Night Party for the Curated Home Project

Last week was the VIP Opening Night Party for the Curated Home project, which is the brainchild of Michael Garden, a real
estate entrepreneur and Val Nehez, a local architect and designer from
Ennis Nehez.

Both have collaborated and ‘curated’ art, furniture and
fabrications from a group of Philadelphia painters, furniture makers and
antique collectors.  All pieces will be for sale along with the
property itself. Ten  Percent of all proceeds will be donated from sales
will benefit  Art- Reach.
Art-Reach is a non-profit whose mission
is to enrich the lives of underserved audiences so they can benefit from
the transformative power of the arts.
