Dirty Cars: Challenging Perceptions of Beauty to support national CARSTAR Soaps It Up Fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis Canada
TORONTO, June 5, 2012 /CNW/ - Few can look into a dirty car windshield and see the potential for beauty; but, from a young age, Austin, TX native Scott Wade had his own vision. He has been creating artistic masterpieces on this unexpected mobile canvas ever since.
For the first time, Scott brings his unique, world-renowned talent to Canada for a single-day exhibit in Toronto. Dirty Cars: Challenging Perceptions of Beauty opens on Wednesday, June 6th at Edition/Richmond (850 Richmond Street West). The exhibit hopes to raise awareness for the ninth annual CARSTAR Soaps It Up Fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis Canada, an initiative that, like Wade, has always seen the hidden beauty in dirty cars. This year, CARSTAR will celebrate $2 million in funds raised for Cystic Fibrosis Canada and local charities. A cause inspired by a beautiful young girl's journey with cystic fibrosis, and a milestone achieved one dirty car at a time.
