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.
Juarez 3.11 Series. Pigmented Archival Print
“Mónica is a home grown artist from Ciudad Juárez who lives and works in New York. She feels that the media only shows the violence and the killings in Juárez, and through her work she hopes to show the human side; how people continue living their lives despite the violence. Within these photographs, there are many amazing stories of people fighting for their community and their freedom, and Lozano’s main objective is to give these people a voice. At the moment, she is involved in bringing JR's TED Prize Wish: The Inside Out Project to the community of Ciudad Juárez.”—Alvarez
