“We are thrilled to present ‘REVIVAL’, a celebration of art, fashion, and community,” says Sarah Oden, co-host and creative coordinator for the event. “An event like this has been a dream of Cat, Kim, and I separately for years. Once we realized our common goal, our ideas transformed into this inaugural event we hope continues to grow and evolve each year: a testament to the rich tapestry of talent within our city, shining a spotlight on our local creatives.”

“’REVIVAL’ not only showcases some of Little Rock’s greatest artistic and fashion talent, it also gives attendees a unique opportunity to push their own creative boundaries. Guests should feel inspired by each year’s theme to dress as inventively as they desire: with imagination and no limits!” says Kimberly Cyr, co-host and wardrobe stylist.

Every year, the organizers of “REVIVAL: An Evening of Art and Fashion” will select a different charitable organization to champion through their annual gathering. While the event primarily celebrates the local creative scene, it also embraces philanthropy as a core principle. Through the collaborative efforts of hosts Cat Sims, Kimberly Cyr, and Sarah Oden, along with the generous support of sponsors, “REVIVAL” endeavors to leave a lasting impact on the community. This year, the event proudly lends its support to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, emphasizing the significance of raising both awareness and funds for this worthy cause. By integrating philanthropy seamlessly into the event, attendees have the opportunity to partake in an evening of artistic expression while contributing to a noble cause. Committed to their ethos of giving back, the hosts ensure that each iteration of “REVIVAL” will continue to benefit a chosen nonprofit, reinforcing the event’s commitment to fostering positive change within the community.
