Join Us at PULSE NY: Auction Presale & Franco Mondini-Ruiz Project

May 8, 2013

Online Auction through May 14
Preview at PULSE NY, with special project by Franco Mondini-Ruiz, May 9-12

Join us at PULSE New York (May 9-12) for our 2013 Auction Presale, featuring work by LaToya Ruby Frazier, Ken Gonzales-Day, Zoe Keating, Simone Leigh, Lisa Sigal, Kerry Skarbakka, Trimpin, Sam Van Aken and other amazing Creative Capital grantees. We’ll also present a special project, Spring Flings & Pretty Things, featuring the dynamic Texas artist Franco Mondini-Ruiz (2001 Visual Arts grantee) in the unlikely role of exhibiting and selling his own works at the fair. Incorporating painting, sculpture, installation, performance, storytelling and a dose of entrepreneurial panache, Mondini-Ruiz creates artworks, environments and experiences that Roberta Smith of The New York Times has said "question notions of preciousness and art-market exclusivity while delivering a fizzy visual pleasure." 

At PULSE NY, we'll also be selling tickets for our Miami Art Fair Raffle, for three nights in an oceanfront room at the Delano Hotel South Beach, December 5-8. Raffle tickets are $50, or $200 for five, and can also be purchased on our auction website.

The auction festivities culminate with our May 14 Benefit Party at Paige West's beautiful home in Tribeca, with a live performance by Daniel Roumain (2002 Performing Arts grantee), great food and drinks, a presentation of Mondini-Ruiz’s Spring Flings project, silent and live auctions, and the raffle drawing. Benefit tickets begin at $250 and can be purchased online.

All auction and special project proceeds are shared with contributing grantees, and benefit Creative Capital’s mission of supporting innovative artists across the country through funding, counsel and career development services.
