David Garibaldi’s life and transition into a world-renowned performance painter is no different. His show Rhythm and Hue is a music and color experience. Large pop portraits explode together on stage in minutes to music. Paint, sound, and entertainment collide for an entertaining show that has brought people around the world to their feet. Garibaldi has helped raise over $2 million for charity through his art.

During his show, David will create the 2018 Senior Gift of a painted portrait of AJ the Bronc! Please consider supporting your Senior Class Gift by visiting
