Lay’s and Doritos will celebrate artist Theo Ponchaveli and his work at The Janette Kennedy Gallery at South Side on Lamar. Guests will enjoy acoustic guitar, refreshments by Pepsi, Buffalo Trace Whiskey cocktails, hors d’oeuvres by The Cedars Social, and complimentary valet parking. Admission is FREE to the public.
Theo Ponchaveli is a self- taught painter and visionary who found his passion for oil painting on canvas just five years prior to entering the art competition hosted by the Lay’s & Doritos brands and benefitting The United Negro College Fund. Artists from across the nation submitted artwork, and the contest website logged more than 50,000 votes. At the end of the competition, Theo Ponchaveli was declared the Grand Prize Winner and Lay’s & Doritos donated $35,000 to UNCF. This exhibit will embody icons from history, art, old Hollywood, music and people who have exemplified Theo’s life motto of “By Any Means Necessary.”
