Appleton was introduced to Haywood during an on-location video shoot at the Coalition for the Homeless. On October 7, more than 125 Hilton Grand Vacations team members came together to launch the Global Week of Service by spending the day volunteering at the Coalition. Haywood sketched and led a group of volunteers in painting the 40-foot mural within the Coalition’s campus.

To recognize these local volunteers, Hilton Grand Vacations hosted an art inspired gallery show, titled “The Spirit of Giving” at Appleton Creative. The centerpiece of the gallery, The Giving Circle™, featured individuals in highlighted moments throughout the Global Week of Service. They also graciously framed a collection of portraits that Haywood illustrated to display within the gallery.

Appleton Creative designed the Appleton Awareness Gallery within our offices as a way to bring awareness to local causes through art. Each exhibit will showcase a body of work inspired by a specific foundation or organization in need. We believe that art should be enjoyed and appreciated, and hope that the meaning behind the art will create an increased awareness for our community’s needs. The Appleton Awareness Gallery is located on the first floor of the Appleton Creative office and is open to the public Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm.
