Project Art Auction Preview
Auctions can be an overwhelming endeavor for those with indecision issues. So we decided to give attendees at Monday’s Project Art silent and live auction, presented by Project Paz in conjunction with Banamex, a sneak peek at some of the coolest lots up for grabs. Sure the event, hosted by the likes of Eddie Borgo, Peter Davis and Eugenia Gonzalez will have plenty of socializing opportunities to keep you busy. But with the proceeds from the auction going towards child support efforts in Ciudad Juarez by the FECHAC Foundation, shouldn’t you check out some of the art, too?
Co-curators Anne Huntington, the founder of creative agency AMH Industries, and Amanda Alvarez, a Ciudad Juarez native and Project Paz board member, gave us their favorite picks from Monday’s offerings. If you don’t have your ticket already, head to projectpaz.org. All starting bids on request by emailing Amanda@projectpaz.org. Happy shopping.
LEDs, painted metal, custom software, electrical hardware, exhibition catalog. Edition of 25.
“Leo Villareal is actually from the El Paso/Juárez area, and we're thrilled that he kindly donated this work to Project Art. Sky (for San José) was created during Leo's survey exhibition at the San Jose Museum of Art in 2010, and each edition is accompanied by an exhibition catalog.”—Amanda Alvarez
