Shenae Grimes & Jessica Stroup Flash Plenty of Skin at Miami Art Show (PHOTOS)
The Canadian starlet was joined by her 90210 co-star Jessica Stroup. Jessica — who ditched her pants for the occasion — was also in good spirits as she smiled for the cameras.
Both ladies were in town to attend Shenae’s photo exhibit, Travelers. The art show focuses on homeless teens that wander the Venice Beach area in California.
On Saturday night, Bing hosted a party to celebrate the exhibit. The event marked the first time the 90210 star shared and sold her photos, which feature Venice Beach street performers she grew close with during her time filming as a homeless teen in the 2010 film Sugar. To raise awareness of the homeless issues in America, proceeds from the night benefited My Friends Place, a shelter in Hollywood Shenae volunteered and filmed at for the movie. The event was a huge success as all 12 of her original photos were sold, raising $3,750 for the shelter.
Shenae wrote about her inspiration in her blog:
Last winter, I played a homeless teen in a film called Sugar and became very passionate about the issue. One that I’ve found was far too often overlooked. During that time, I volunteered and filmed at a tiny, amazing shelter in Hollywood called My Friend’s Place and have chosen them as the recipient of our proceeds from the evening. While filming in Venice I became very close with a group of street travelers passing through and captured much of my time with them on film.
Shenae’s gallery is a part of Art Basel, Miami’s prestigious art show. The show runs from December 1st to the 4th.
