COMMUNITY ART AUCTION ABU DHABI
In the Community Art Auction, Green Abu Dhabi 2013 replicates what was clearly so successful in 2010. Once again we find a unique way to hold an auction in which everyone can be involved. First we hold a traditional auction by the Future Center in which 20 of their best artists have their works go on auction to raise money for the Charity Fund, in which the Future Center and the Landmark Mangrove Project share equally. This year we will also be auctioning to the highest bidder the 4 sculptures that were made by Abu Dhabi's children and parents team at YAS Waterworld. After the money is raised from the Auction and added to the Charity Fund, the 4 Sculptures will be permanently gifted by our generous buyer to the YAS Marina for permanent display.
Now to make this as exciting as the last time we once again invite our VIP's, artists, and guests, to not only come and rally at the Auction and generate funds for the cause, but to actually produce work themselves and have them displayed at the event in a silent auction. So along with the children of the Future Center, whose works go on auction, there will be displayed throughout the event location, 3 works from each of the 20 selected celebrity artists. The purpose here is to make sure all these works sell, and to ensure this, we pick our celebrities carefully and make sure they have strong support. Then we set our starting prices very low, at 300 AED. By doing this, Green Abu Dhabi says, "don't worry, if you can't afford the main show, you can always take home some art and give to charity for a very easy price, that should at least help you remember your efforts".
With the Celebrity artists 100% of the funds raised go to the Charity Fund split the same was as mentioned earlier.
Either have fun being an artist for a day, rally and raise money for charity, or go home with great art, either which way, if you engage you can't lose.
Opening will be at 6:30 on the 11'th of June, 2013, at the Ballroom of the Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara in Abu Dhabi.
Soon to come.
