Down Art Book and the Be Yourself Fashion Show Auditions

The John Langdon Down Foundation's book Mexican School of Down Art is now available for purchase in the U.S.

This book showcases the "talent, effort and artistic endeavors of 29 acclaimed artists" who have Down syndrome and studied art at the Foundation's workshop. It features paintings, engravings, and lithographs. Works produced by the school's artists have been exhibited across Europe, Asia, and North America.

Sounds like it is a book full of beautiful work!

The Global Down Syndrome Foundation is having auditions for the upcoming Be Beautiful Be Yourself Jet Set Fashion Show. DeOndra Dixon, Jamie Foxx's sister, is this year's ambassador.

Children with Down syndrome, age 7 and up, are invited to come to Denver for auditions on July 29th with the Fashion Show taking place on Oct 15. Links to the audition forms can be found here.

Oh how I wish we were still living in NM so I could take Kayla to this event!
