1:26 The Art of Epilepsy art show/fundraiser showcases the inspiring works by artists spanning the globe, linked by the common thread of epilepsy.  Although each of these artists stories’ are unique, their works become a collective force to combat the injustices, discrimination, and marginalization directed against these individuals, many who continue to live in the shadows of this diagnosis

Hidden Truths Project’s The Art of Epilepsy is extremely pleased to expand these artist’s voices to a national stage in an effort to build a world of inclusivity, tolerance, and understanding.

Beneficiary| CURE,  one of the leading non-governmental agencies thoroughly committed to funding research that will lead to a cure for epilepsy, to transform and save millions of lives.

Please join Hidden Truths Project as we honor Kelly and Miguel Cervantes at the Seventh Annual 1:26 The Art of Epilepsy. In the Spring of 2016, Kelly and Miguel’s daughter, Adelaide, was diagnosed with Infantile Spasms. Since then, Miguel has used his platform as the lead in Chicago production of HAMILTON to spearhead the My Shot at Epilepsy fundraising campaign and began a local and national media tour telling their story and raising awareness and money for CURE.
