Non profit living

Unique art evening to benefit a trio of non-profit groups

Performance painter David Garibaldi will be in Stockton for a one night show in aid of the Stockton Animal Protection League (APL), the Haggin Museum and the Stockton Symphony. Guests will have an unforgettable evening while supporting three renowned non-profit organizations.

This unique event is scheduled for Saturday, October 8 at 6 p.m. at the Bob Hope Theater in Stockton. Doors open at 5 p.m. and ticket prices range from $28 to $103.

Garibaldi’s pictorial performance is an experience for your senses. The collision of music and color occurs live on stage while splattering paint to create distinctive large-scale portraits in minutes. During his performances, Garibaldi creates images through his bodily movements and his brushes while communicating via music to an amazed audience.

“I create images in a catchy way and my hope is to inspire audiences to use their passion to benefit and inspire others,” Garibaldi said. “It’s music and color. It’s the rhythm and the hue.

The evening, hosted by GoodDay Sacramento’s Big Al Sams, will include a live performance by an ensemble from the Stockton Symphony conducted by Peter Jaffe and K-9 demonstrations by the Stockton Police Department and the County Sheriff’s Office. San Joaquín. Garibaldi will create three paintings during his performance which will be auctioned, along with other items, at the end of the evening.

His musical inspirations include U2, Kanye West, Jay Z, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Beatles, Lady Gaga and Glitch Mob. The energy of these performances is both compelling and engaging and there is nothing quite like it in the world. Hundreds of thousands of people have watched Garibaldi paint live as he transforms a blank black canvas into pop art icons through his “Rhythm and Hue” shows. Garibaldi has performed for Fortune 500 companies including AT&T, Intel and Disney. It has also been featured at charity events for Playboy, NBA and celebrities Snoop Dog, Santana, Tommy Lee, Dave Navarro and Blue Man Group.

Inspiration serves Garibaldi in his art and his life. “Live with passion and purpose” pushes Garibaldi every day to transcend what he does as an artist into a philanthropist. A high school animation teacher first inspired him to take his passion for graffiti and turn it into a more positive and creative direction. Garibaldi never forgets this encouragement and especially the value of someone who believes in him. Each performance is an opportunity to give back, either by teaching young people or providing resources to the community.
