ISC Art Party in New York City on October 27-29, 2011
The event is comprised of three days of daytime art programming, including artist led studio visits, talks and exhibition tours coupled with two nights of evening cocktail parties, an art sale and a silent auction benefit. More than three hundred artist, patron and collector guests are expected to attend the multi-day event. All proceeds from this event support the programs and publications of the International Sculpture Center.
Artists Judith Shea, Boaz Vaadia and Ursula von Rydingsvard, along with many other contemporary sculptors, will host daytime art programming located in the private studios, galleries and sculpture museums of Brooklyn and Long Island City. The programs are designed to provide attendees with the opportunity to engage with the artists and get a closer look at the creative process of today's successful professional sculptors.
Evening events include a cocktail reception at the new Haunch of Venison gallery in Chelsea on October 27th. The premiere event of the three-day program, the ISC Art Party, will be held at the Met Pavilion on October 28th. This fundraising event will feature an art sale with works by both emerging and established artists including James Surls, William King, Manuel Neri and many more. The ISC Art Party will also incorporate a silent auction, boasting luxury vacation packages as well as a "Chinese Auction" and raffle with items that include private curator lead museum tours, substantial gift baskets, fine dining and other prizes.
"The ISC Art Party is a multifaceted celebration of sculpture. The combination of artist led events, an art sale and fantastic parties create an opportunity for attendees to connect with today's best sculptors, collect their work and have a great time doing it!" remarked Johannah Hutchison, Executive Director of the International Sculpture Center.
