Local Santa Barbara photographer/filmmaker/cinematographer/music producer, Alan Kozlowski and Luis Moro, award-winning filmmaker/author/producer teamed up to bring together a group of locally involved artists who all have a shared interest in the future of Santa Barbara.
“We are billing this ‘Artists for Angel Martinez’,” Kozlowski and Moro said.
“I believe in this town. I believe in this culture. I believe Angel Martinez shares my same beliefs,” said Kozlowski. “After hearing many good things through common friends that believe in Angel’s approach to leading Santa Barbara, we wanted to be a part of this solution. I think the artists feel this way too.”
“Living a great life is an Art. Being a Parent is an Art. Anyone that’s in business is an artist, with great employees creating goods and services for the benefit of Santa Barbara. We can be assured that Angel, a successful CEO, and parent, a fully functioning-self determined person as I say, will be in City Hall delivering a new sustainable future for Santa Barbara.” said Luis Moro.
Both agree this event is an opportunity for artists from all walks of life to learn about Angel and hear his vision for the future of Santa Barbara – an optimistic vision of collaboration and collective leadership. A future that includes everyone, with no one left out.
The concert is open to all ages. Tickets can be purchased on SOhO’s website: www.SOhOsb.com.
