Destination: Art at Torrance Memorial Holiday Festival

Giving Back to the Community

From the beginning, Destination: Art has been organized as a public benefit corporation and has non-profit tax-exempt status. As such, during our first year, we have been on the look-out for ways to use our artistic creativity to give back to the community and benefit others. Consequently, Destination; Art has been welcomed into the community of volunteers that design and decorate the trees for the Torrance Memorial Holiday Festival.  
Holiday Festival is a one-of-a-kind holiday event that includes, beautifully decorated trees, entertainment, holiday gifts, children's activities, food court and special events featuring a fashion show, dinner gala, and a Santa lunch. The Festival will be open to the public December 1 - 6 in the Torrance Memorial parking lot - look for the big tent!
Holiday Festival is an important tradition at Torrance Memorial and a true cornerstone in fundraising efforts. This signature event is vital in helping Torrance achieve high quality medical services for all residents of the South Bay. This year all proceeds will support Torrance Memorial Medical Center.
Destination: Art's tree will be decorated with ornaments all hand-made by the the artists of Destination: Art, featuring 60 miniature painting reproductions of famous paintings with a holiday twist! For example,  Vermeer's Girl with Pearl Earring has become Elf with Pearl Earring in acrylic by Margaret Lindsey. See below:

Can't wait until December to see these precious gems?

Ornaments made by the artists of Destination: Art will be available for purchase at our
