Carol Worthington-Levy’s efforts to spread her love of art and the joy of owning artwork has led her to donate works to people and places where it would benefit them to have original art.
• A Village Remembered: In late 2019 Carol completed a set of paintings of endangered historic landmarks in one of the oldest communities in America. The project, called A Village Remembered: Recalling the historic sites of Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, and the book that followed, was created in a partnership with acclaimed poet, Arthur Turfa. Both, for two decades, shared the experience of growing up in that village, founded by Quakers in the late 1690s.
The book, available on Amazon as both Kindle and Print On Demand, was created as a way to educate that community today about the rich and precious history of its past. This history also included its being an important stop for the Underground Railroad, and some of the structures there with tunnels and basements were endangered by development.
Along with the paintings, Carol’s participation in the project included her in-depth historical research and documentation presented in the book, as well as designing the book and arranging for its publication.
All proceeds to the authors were and continue to be donated to Preservation Pennsylvania for use to preserve Pennsylvania history and provide funds to help in the legal battle to preserve these structures.
• Colorful Surroundings for Seniors: In 2017-18 Carol donated bright, colorful matted and framed images to a retirement home/assisted living wing for memory-impaired residents.The large shapes and bright colors make the art easier to see by those suffering from Macular Degeneration and cataracts.
• Art for Fire Survivors – Tiny Pine Foundation: Starting in summer of 2020, Carol has been framing her original art work and printing giclees, and donating them to Tiny Pines, a nonprofit foundation to replace homes for those who lost them in the Paradise, CA fires.
• art : Carol also donates work to silent auctions for Schola Cantorum, Catalog and eCommerce Club of Northern California, Willow Glen Foundation for WG Middle and High Schools, and Lions Club International fundraisers.
