Kobe Bryant’s commitment to charitable causes is as legendary as his mastery on the basketball court. That’s why it is fitting that he is the subject of a stunning new mosaic utilized to raise funds for the — International Dyslexia Association (IDA). From now until March 31, 2021, a donation of $10 or more to the IDA’s “Perseverence Brings Promise” fundraiser will give individuals a chance to make this one-of-a-kind tribute their own.
The piece was created and donated by renowned artist Loring Cornish. His artwork can be found in permanent collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC, and the Reginald F. Lewis Museum in Baltimore, MD. “We are very grateful to Loring Cornish, not only for his generosity but also for his for his passion for improving literacy,” says CEO Sonja Banks. “IDA is committed to serving all who struggle to read…because reading changes lives. This fundraising effort affords us the opportunity to increase our support and expand our programs and services, especially in these unprecedented times.”
Surrounded by genuine basketballs, this stunning tribute depicts Kobe Bryant’s relentless practice of his craft. Hundreds of stainless-steel screws symbolize how he built a career with commitment and hard work. Strips of hand-cut mirror reflect the time and talent Bryant spent influencing and uplifting disadvantaged youth over two decades.
For each donation of at least $10, a donor receives a specified number of entries to win with no limit on the number of chances that can be purchased. Proceeds from the drawing will go to provide struggling readers and teachers with the technology, software, tutorial, advocate services, and training that students need to thrive and succeed.
This prize includes: The 48” x 24” x1” Mosaic created with Glass, Finished Wood, Photograph, Basketballs, and 2/16th Metal Screws; a Certificate of Authenticity and shipping and handling (U.S. only) to the winner.
