The Art Of Elysium had their fifth annual Genesis and it was a complete success. During the madness of Emmy week, the event still made time to showcase what it does best!
The Art of Elysium held their fifth GENESIS on Sept. 20 as the premiere event had the festivities at the new Siren Studios Cube, a brand new 13,000 sq. ft. smart stage in the heart of Hollywood. Genesis, which is an event that truly speaks to the heart and soul of The Art of Elysium’s mission, a uniquely creative experience that showcases the work of emerging talent within the charity’s four main artistic disciplines – art, fashion, music, and theatre/media.

The Art Of Elysium Genesis Event
The Art of Elysium is dedicated to enriching the lives of not only critically ill children, but also the artists who volunteer their time. Artists have the unique ability to help children in need find a creative voice and discover a sense of individuality and self-efficacy, even in the midst of overwhelmingly difficult circumstances. In return, those same artists, who have been taken outside of their normal scope of work, are stretched and enriched in ways they never imagined. GENESIS is meant to celebrate the emerging talent within these programs as well as act as a call to arms for the next generation of artists. The Art of Elysium uses GENESIS to celebrate young up-and-coming artists who want to learn, get involved with and grow with the charity for years to come.
This year’s GENESIS was presented by HUDSON Jeans, in association with Siren Studios and additional support by Patrón tequila.
Each year, The Art of Elysium curates an art installation that included artists such as Chris Cuseo, Davida Nemeroff, James Georgeopoulos and Gregory Siff. This year’s fashion installed a denim bar hosted by HUDSON Jeans, which featured a live art performance from LAB Art artists Mar and Annie Preece, who immersed in a #LETYOURSELFGO environment and attitude. “At HUDSON Jeans, our purpose is to inspire people to live their dreams. We are proud to partner with The ART OF ELYSIUMon this exciting event to champion the artistic and creative spirit while helping children,” said Peter Kim, CEO and Founder of HUDSON Jeans.
Guests also enjoyed live musical performances by emerging bands and artists including Incan Abraham and Jenny O along with DJ’s Bizzy, Chris Masterson, Chris Kennedy and Brandon Solieau.
So HollywoodLifers, sounds like a pretty incredible event now doesn’t it? We can’t wait till next year ourselves!
