The Prize

Hollywood Photographer, Bert Stern, originally created this limited quantity silkscreen of Marilyn Monroe from his 1962 "Last Sitting" photo shoot with her for his store, which he opened on the 1st of March in 1968.

The concept was to combine, for the first time, a store with an art gallery, providing artists with a new outlet for their art in a new form. The store sold such items as Roy Lichtenstein’s paper plates, Bert Stern, Marilyn Monroe silk-screen scarves, vintage pop art playing cards set with the erotic serigraph designs by Bob (Robert) Stanley, and much more. 

Bert Stern shot what is now known as the “Last Sitting”, he shot over 2500 images over a three day period in the Beverly Hills Hotel for Vogue magazine. Many of these photographs were never printed or shown to public, until Bert discovered them in a box some 40 years later. He took them to Duggal, a photo lab in New York with whom Bert had worked for over 50 years, to see if they could help restore the photo's.

Only a handful of those photographs taken by Bert Stern became the now famous Psychedelic Black Light Pop Art Silkscreen Serigraphs. Bert used experimental techniques to create the serigraphs. The Psychedelic Day Glo Ink colors are amazing under a Black Light.

The Cause

The Help A Life Foundation was formed in 2007 with the goal of housing and educating adolescent orphaned girls and providing them with a secure and supportive environment. We currently house 52 girls in a building compound capable of accommodating 56 girls and managed with a local staff of nine. Four tutorial rooms are used daily with a staff of six tutors in a range of subjects from English to Biology. 44 girls have completed high school and are at different universities throughout Ethiopia with most studying to become doctors or engineers.

These girls are selected from the surrounding villages with the collaborative effort of the local community leaders where they are housed in a gated safe group home with all living necessities provided for.

In addition, life skills training is also provided to integrate them into society as productive citizens. We currently have three self-sustaining projects, where five of the girls are managing them full-time as their careers and will be paid an according salary that allows them to integrate back into society as a proven success of Project Blue.

Much of the success of this project is due to Help a Life working directly with the local government and businesses. All of the HALF staff on Project Blue in Debre Markos are Ethiopian, and decisions are made in tandem with the local government officials.
