Underneath the cacophony of news delivered daily by a tragedy-obsessed media lies a hunger for what is beautiful, creative and celebratory. The Heart of Chaos Artisan Collective invites you to experience “Birth”, an art exhibit that is, at once a tribute to the human spirit and its often arduous passage into the physical world, and the act of giving life to music and art and all manner of things that uplift our experience. Please join us for a memorable evening.

About Heart of Chaos
Heart of Chaos (HOC) was created with the financial & inspirational support of Catalyst for Youth, a 501 (c) 3 California corporation. The core idea was to provide a venue for emerging and under-recognized artists, writers, poets, musicians, performance artists and photographers to showcase and market their work. Mentoring through communication with established artists enriches both parties and fosters new ideas and inspiration. >>Learn More
As our world continues toward an unknown future, Heart of Chaos Artisan Collective presents a show that challenges its audience to contemplate its future.
The installation will be a complete living, breathing, fully interactive exhibit that allows you, the audience, to choose your own adventure.
Come navigate through a 6,000+ sq foot art-filled labyrinth, while interacting with live artists and performers, and dialogue about two divergent paths: Annihilation or Evolution? Transformation or Doomsday? Fear or Love?
