Thank you to everyone who came out to our annual Benefit & Auction on May 14th—what a fantastic night! Special thanks to Daniel Roumain for an incredibly moving musical performance, and to artist Franco Mondini-Ruiz, who painted portraits of many of our guests. And of course, we are eternally grateful to our amazingly generous board member, Paige West, who hosted the event at her beautiful home in Tribeca. We’re already looking forward to next year’s festivities!
The setting: A panoramic view of Paige West’s living room with our auction artworks installed.
Auction artworks by Kerry Skarbakka, Ken Gonzales-Day and Sam Van Aken (amidst other work from Paige West’s collection, on display in her gorgeous living room).
Benefit guests perused paintings by grantee Franco Mondini-Ruiz (2001 Visual Arts). The works were part of Franco’s special project, Spring Flings and Pretty Things, which Creative Capital presented at PULSE NY and at the Benefit party.
Franco painted portraits of many of the Benefit guests, including host Paige West and Christopher Cooper.
