When local artist Brenda Bogart saw images of thousands of cars wrapped around Dallas’ Fair Park waiting to receive food after the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic, she knew she wanted to do something to help. She decided that her artwork was the best way she could support hungry families in Dallas.

Brenda will be selling 1,000 of her limited edition “Heart & Soul” prints, each for $150 with 100% of the net proceeds going to North Texas Food Bank. That means that each print will provide 333 meals for our community, and a complete sell-out would realize over 333,000 meals.

“My heart is aching for the increased impact of hunger brought on by the coronavirus,” shared Brenda. “This piece of art will have a story to tell in generations to come. It will represent how you helped in a time of great need and how we pulled together as a country to provide the most basic needs for our community.”

Ewing Subaru of Plano has stepped up to help Brenda’s efforts. The dealership has purchased 130 of her prints, essentially providing more than 43,000 meals to North Texas Food Bank, and will give away one print for every new car purchase during the period of June 29 through July 31 while supplies last. Every print is hand-signed and numbered by the artist, and will be packaged with a certificate of authenticity.

If you would like to buy one of Brenda’s prints directly, you can purchase on her website.
