Open to the public and taking place at the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, the event running Oct. 11-13 gives you the chance to rub shoulders with the rich and/or famous.  It begins with the Meet The Artists reception Oct. 11 followed by the Spirit Of Excellence Awards dinner Oct. 12 with Ms. Caillat performing.

But it doesn’t stop with the awards because Oct. 13 is filled with arts, music, wine, beer and gourmet food trucks.

Presented by American Airlines and the Universal Music Group with a sponsor list including Accenture, Code Advisors, Live Nation, Mediacom, Microsoft, Spinlet and the Wasserman Foundation, the Artworks For The Cure benefits the T.J.
