Lainie Siegel, Principal of JUNGLE 8/creative is presented an Award of Appreciation at the Art Share Los Angeles Showcase
July 19, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News(Los Angeles, CA)—JUNGLE 8/creative, a leading design, marketing and advertising firm, has received many honors, “…but I am most proud of those from within my own community,” said Lainie Siegel, Principal & Creative Director. With home and office located in the Old Brewery District for the past 13 and 5 years respectively, Ms. Siegel has been “investing” in Downtown LA long before lofts were the hot new trend that they are today. Early on, she saw the value in the area and made a conscious effort to contribute to its artistic livelihood.
Siegel will be honored with an Award of Appreciation at the Art Share Los Angeles Student Showcase this month. The event, which features artwork from the ASLA students, affords them the opportunity to gain valuable experience in presenting their work to the public. The showcase also features a live theatre performance, which will be exciting for everyone.
Art Share Los Angeles, a non-profit organization that develops emerging professional visual and theater artists, brings workshops to the Los Angeles inner-city community, its children and families. ASLA also offers other programs such as BLAST (Building Language and Art Skills Together), GIFT (Gang Intervention For Teens) and Community Beautification, a program bridging community barriers by creating ambitious art projects designed and installed by at-risk youth under the guidance of professional artists.
JUNGLE 8/creative, Art Share LA’s design firm of record, recently redesigned the ASLA website which can be found at www.artsharela.org. As a part of Siegel’s commitment to non-profits, she previously served as the ASLA Digital Lab & Creative Coordinator. Not stopping at just developing the curriculum, she also taught web and graphic design to their at-risk teens. “I’m always interested in new talent and excited to help them develop their personal approach to design. Seeing these artists begin their journey keeps me fresh in my own [journey through art].
