Momenta's Spring Benefit and Artadia's UNRESTRICTED

Come to Momenta's Spring Benefit! Momenta is a wonderful artist-run charitable institution in Brooklyn, NY, and they need your support. The preview party is this Friday, May 10 at 6 PM, and the benefit raffle and silent auction are on Wednesday, May 22 from 6-10 PM. The events will be held at the Momenta Art gallery at 56 Bogart Street. Purchase a raffle ticket for a chance to own my drawing Attempt to Catch a Coyote, or one of the numerous beautiful pieces available by a variety of emerging and established artists. Take a look here.

On Monday, May 13th is Artadia's UNRESTRICTED benefit at Eventi Hotel in Chelsea starting at 6:30 PM. Artadia is an amazing organization that awards unrestricted grants to artists in 5 US cities: Boston, Atlanta, San Francisco, Chicago and Houston. I received an Artadia grant in Chicago in 2006. I was commissioned to make an artwork to be screened at UNRESTRICTED--and that piece is How to Break a Coconut, a video done in collaboration with Trish Tillman. Buy a ticket to enjoy the party and see How to Break a Coconut! You can also see commissioned works by Serena Lin Bush and the Center for Tactical Magic.
