Recruiting Organization: Rise of the Butterfly: Art Driven Activism to Build Resilience

We are looking to build a new element to our non-profit work which focuses on the development of resilience through art activism. It is a great opportunity to see how to build a non-profit from the ground up using a well tested and successful foundation. Our ideal candidate is somebody with understanding of the art world, commerce, and non-profits development. This is an exciting opportunity to work directly with the founder as well as on a concert series with A-list performers and world renowned fundraising and marketing teams.

Must want to be in the media art world.

Layla Love’s journey into the world of fine art photography began at 21 when she entered the world of war photojournalism. Love studied journalism and global communications at Richmond International University in London where she would realize that visual imagery is the strongest tool we have to convey what life is really like for those living through crisis.

For five years her sole focus would be on documenting the plight of women in war-torn regions of the world. The experiences she had and the women she connected with during this time have shaped the way she views femininity, humanity, and life.

Her artwork is layered in meaning, but always with the core assertion that the true beauty of art is the potential to communicate in a way words cannot. Through her art, she seeks to illuminate our human consciousness.

Her project Rise Of The Butterfly collects Art-driven funding to raise awareness for those recovering from human trafficking. "Rise Of The Butterfly brings us art and purpose. What could be better than that?", says Gloria Steinem, feminist activist, and author.

Love’s fine art photography captures life as a series of adventures and expeditions into the unknown, returning always with a greater sense of what it means to be human. Love envisions a world where art changes people, and people change the world.

Kanye West, music artist and fashion designer once said "She creates art that makes you feel sane in an insane world."

Her work has wide recognition within the industry. Art collectors should view her work not simply as something that moves them, but as a reliable investment as well.

Accolades for Love’s war photography include a photographic selection added to the White House’s permanent art collection in 2008. Her artwork has been exhibited at Paris Photo and Art Basel. Love’s artwork is part of the MoMa-sponsored AiPAD Photography Show in New York, which is the longest-running and foremost exhibition of fine art photography.

Corporate art collectors have invested heavily in Love’s fine art photography. Tiffany & Co. commissioned Love to create over 40 unique works inspired by her work titled, "The Fullest Bloom" for their Diamond Showrooms worldwide, forever iconizing Love’s work as part of the Tiffany & Co. brand’s lifestyle.

Love’s photography has been exhibited in over 100 photographic exhibitions alongside world-renowned artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Robert Mapplethorpe, Pablo Picasso, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Kara Walker.

Owning her work would elevate any art collector’s portfolio.
