This…this is pretty spectacular.
Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber has done such much for the arts, creatively and otherwise, but as of this week, he's taken his involvement a step further with a generous donation to art inspired charities.
The famed composer auctioned off one of his Pablo Picasso paintings last year to raise funds for the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation. The money from that sale went directly to organizations that offer special services in art and culture, such as the youth theatre company Chickenshed and the music charity Nordoff Robbins, which specializes in music therapy.
So, how much money did these fine charities make from the sale. Drum roll please….
Wowza! Incredible! Such a generous thing to do!
Got anymore Picasso paintings lying around? A few more sales like that and we might save art programs across the whole country!!!
