William Mangum Discusses New Art Collection "Fall Into Me"
William Mangum has been a professional artist for 36 years, selling his art all over the world, running his own gallery and giving back to the community. Bill has provided original art to the Honor Card program for 25 years, raising awareness about the homeless in Our State. Bill’s involvement sprang from a chance meeting he had years ago with a homeless man named Mike Saavedra who was unable to care for himself. Bill ultimately became Mike’s caretaker, and he credits Mike for teaching him many life lessons. Bill’s new book “Michael’s Gift: An Artist’s Journey to the True Meaning of Life” is his personal tribute.
“Michael’s Gift: An Artist’s Journey to the True Meaning of Life” contains all 25 paintings of the annual Honor Card. One hundred percent of all contributions support the agency, and so far they’ve raised $4.5 million to support the homeless. This year’s card is "Fall Into Me". Bill’s new Home Collection is titled “Carolina Preserves”.
