The need for FLITE'S work has never been greater in light of the pandemic. Covid -19 postponed our annual art show, but we continued with our dedication to FLITE's mission.

Recorded in April 2020, Master Sculptor and FLITE co-founder, Angela Mia De la Vega, speaks to other artists. While discussing her inspiration for Sunshine Every Day, she shares her optimism about the good she hopes will come in the future, as depicted by Sunshine and the rainbow on which she stands.

Past Events

Art of Freedom 2019

The Lawley Art Group

November 9, 2019

Our 2019 event was a fantastic success!


A contemporary gallery in the Dallas Arts District served as the backdrop for a wonderful evening of high spirits and energy; wonderful food, wine, and music. Artists mingling with guests were encouraged by many who bought their work.

FLITE's Board of Directors, our Chairs, and Hosts worked tirelessly to make this a successful evening. Along with speakers from our partner for the event, Mosaic Family Services, who shared encouraging stories and powerful messages of humanity, healing and hope, we were able to raise a significant amount for their organization.

Art of Freedom 2018

The Lawley Art Group

September 22,2018

In 2018 FLITE hosted its inaugural Art of Freedom 

fundraiser, held in the gallery of the Lawley Art Group. More than 350 guests marveled at the original displayed works, accompanied by live music performances.

Speakers from our partner, Mosaic Family Services,

moved us with their stirring accounts of finding freedom, empowerment and hope.

It was a wonderful evening of celebrating art as a medium that promotes humanitarian efforts. We were overwhelmed by the enthusiastic support of our guests. Donations and proceeds from a live painting by gallery owner, Tanner Lawley, far exceeded our goal for the evening!
