“The day I wrote this song, I was sitting in a circle of people of all ages and we were asked, “Why are you here.” Why am I here?? This really hit me on a deep level. I realized no one had ever asked me that question before.

Lost in a Lucid Dream Ruthy ValdezVote to send Ruthy Valdez to the finals for a chance to win a Solo show at Art Basel in Miami.

BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® Gin and Russell and Danny Simmons’ Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation continue to partner together to showcase emerging artists.

During Artisan Series, a select group of artists will be chosen from online submissions and local art gallery events for a chance to exhibit their work at the Grand Finale event at the SCOPE MIAMI BEACH Art Show.

The creators of the top three pieces from the Grand Finale will participate in the BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Artisan Series Mural project in each of their hometowns, and the Grand Finale Winner will receive a solo show at SCOPE NYC in March 2015.   SCOPE Arts is one of the most important shows at Miami Art Basel.

Ruthy Valdez has made it to the semi-final round of this contest.  She needs our vote to get into the finals.

CLICK HERE TO VOTE FOR RUTHY AND SEND HER TO THE FINALS.

You can vote once a day per entry until November 9th.

Ruthy Valdez’s has previously won another contest with Bombay Sapphire and Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation this year.   The earlier contest was for the most likes and shares on Instagram, for which she ultimately won the grand prize: two tickets to Russell Simmons 15th Annual Art For Life Gala in the Hamptons.

Full disclosure: We have been huge fans of Ruthy’s work since we first encountered it at Harlem’s 67 Orange several years ago.  We finally met Ruthy  and subsequently acquired one of her works.  It delivers reflection, introspection, hope and joy each and every day.  Thank you Ruthy.
