16 artists. 16 hoods.
Porsche Centre Lebanon and the National Heritage Foundation launch the Hoods for Heritage initiative
August 2012 – Sixteen local artists from different industries were each given a Porsche 911 hood. These artists, working each from a different perspective, have transformed these hoods from integral elements of a car to stand-alone pieces of art. Proceeds from the “Hoods for Heritage” project will support the efforts of The National Heritage Foundation when the transformed hoods will be auctioned off at a gala dinner organized by the NHF in September.
As reported by The Daily Star:
September 1, 2012 – This year in Lebanon cars are again providing a catalyst for art. As part of the launch of its Porsche Arts for Society initiative – aptly titled “PArtS” – Porsche Centre Lebanon has taken 16 bonnets from its Porsche 911 series and donated them to well-known local artists and designers to use as media for their work.
The result is “Hoods for Heritage,” a selection of 16 works currently on show at the Villa Audi in Ashrafieh. The pieces will be auctioned off at a gala dinner next month, with the proceeds going to support the labors of the Lebanese National Heritage Foundation. Learn more →
