Art Show

Show off your creativity at Heartspring's art show!

Calling all artists!  We love to see your creativity and your imagination run wild. Join us in showcasing a variety of artworks and mediums from all age levels.

The theme of the art show is SUMMER. Think sunshine, burgers, sunscreen, beach, inclusivity, families, friends, yellows, greens, hot, popsicles, and so much more. Though your artwork doesn’t necessarily need to fit the theme, we are hoping it will serve as inspiration for artists to get started.

Meet and Greet with Holly Robinson Peete

Holly Robinson Peete will be joining Heartspring’s CAREfest!

Philadelphia born actress, author, TV host, wife, mother, and philanthropist Holly Robinson Peete has a professional entertainment career that spans over 5 decades. In 1986, Holly landed a starring role opposite Johnny Depp on the wildly popular FOX police drama “21 Jump Street.” She has had major recurring roles and appearance on shows like “One on One”, “Mike & Molly” and “Chicago Fire”, Law & Order SVU” and currently has joined the hit ABC comedy “American Housewife”. Holly is also a beloved Hallmark Channel leading lady, starring in over 13 movies for the popular network.

In 1997, inspired by Holly’s father (diagnosed with Parkinson’s) and the Peetes’ son RJ (diagnosed with autism), Holly and her husband, former NFL quarterback, Rodney launched the HollyRod Foundation to provide compassionate care and advocacy for both Parkinson’s and autism.

Holly has published several books which include My Brother Charlie, Scholastic’s bestselling children’s book co-written with her daughter Ryan Elizabeth Peete, followed by Same but Different: Teen Life on the Autism Express, co-authored by her twins Ryan Elizabeth and RJ.
