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.

Ian Cuttler, “Fight”, 2011 from “The Games We Play”
Photographic print mounted on Kodak metallic paper. Edition of 14.
“These images from the series ‘The Games We Play,’ 2011 beautifully evoke universal power and solemn reflection, with symbolic light and real importance shining throughout. The hands connect to peace and war offering two extremes – praying and fighting. The works connect to Juarez in the dualistic subject matter confronting the simple yet complex reality, ultimately leaving it up to us to define.”—Huntington
