One of our most exciting projects this
year is in collaboration with the Junior Service League
of Grand Junction whose yearly Walk-4-Life provides funding
for mammography screening exams for low income, uninsured
women in Mesa County. Our project Leaves-4-Life shares
in this worthy effort and at the same time provides scholarships
for our post-adjuvant therapy wellness retreats, "Art
in the Canyons," here at Eagleheart Center for Art and
Inquiry. The leaves will be mounted, and in fact cover
a 19' tall central water feature and benches at the Western
Colorado Botanical Gardens. You can participate in this
wonderful venture by purchasing and inscribing or ordering
the inscription of a ceramic leaf. Celebrate someone
you love, celebrate yourself or simply inspire others
with your personal mantra.
Personalize a ceramic leaf in celebration of the courage and spirit of those affected by cancer.
We will block-stamp a name, a favorite
saying, even just a single inspiring word in a wet clay
leaf in honor of your own experience or that of a loved
one or a friend. Choose from 5 beautiful glaze colors
and we will fire it for you. If you need a little help
thinking about what to write on your leaf, click
here for a few ideas.
Your leaves will then be installed in benches and a new sculptural water feature at the Western Colorado Botanical Gardens called Celebration Plaza. This exciting pedestrian plaza and walkway will provide a place of family gathering as well as quiet meditation. It's a place to remember and honor the brave lives that have been challenged by cancer.
Each tile leaf is a permanent and lasting high-fired ceramic. You may inscribe your own at this year's Walk-4-Life in October or you may order a leaf to be made to your wording by one of Eagleheart's Artists. You can choose from three styles and sizes of Leaves. Include spaces in your character count.
Walnut, approx. 4"x7", up to 16 characters - $50
Cottonwood , approx 5" x 9", up to 24 characters - $150
Oak, approx 6" x 12", up to 50 characters - $250
Purchase a ceramic tile Leaf as a tribute to someone who has survived cancer, in honor of someone who has lost their battle, or simply as a contribution to this worthy cause.
If you cannot attend the event but want
to create a personal tile, please complete the
Leaves-4-Life represents the collaborative efforts of:

The Junior Service League of Grand Junction

The proceeds from this new project will help support Walk-4-Life screening mammograms and scholarships for low-income women to attend wellness weekend arts retreats at The Lynette Jennings Foundation's Eagleheart Center for Arts and Inquiry.
