Nurture Art Benefit Tickets: Get 'em while they're hot!

Of all the benefits I attended last season that one that seemed most infused with energy, good will, and just plain fun was the one benefiting NURTUREart. There was a real air of optimism and joy, despite the economy, which was so encouraging given Nurture Art's mission of helping emerging artists, which they do consistently and generously with a true democratic spirit and warmth.

Therefore it gives me great pleasure to volunteer for this year's benefit committee and to be able to give you a sneak peek at this year's event. It's a few months off, but if you act early you can get gala entry for two people (they had great food and drinks last year and your ticket includes one artwork) for 20% off! Here's the real deal, though, if you get a VIP ticket, you get first choice of your artwork at the VIP Preview @ 6:00 pm. The folks lined up for this last year were so excited, and the rush in to select from early among the great works was exhilarating.

Here's the vital info:

Ticket Prices:
  • $200.00 VIP Tickets Purchased Before October 1st: Includes early admission to the VIP Benefit for two and one work of art
  • $250.00 VIP Tickets Purchased After October 1st: Includes all of the above
  • $75.00 General Admission Tickets: Includes entrance to the Benefit after the VIP preview
Benefit Details (as of August 10th):
  • Date and Location: Tuesday, October 12th at ZieherSmith gallery
  • Honoring: Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento of Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts
  • Benefit Artist Submission curated by: Dan Cameron (Prospect New Orleans), Ceci Moss (Rhizome.org), Jane Panetta (MoMA), and 2009-2010 NURTUREart curatorial alum, Krista Saunders.
I'll update you as we get closer to the event, but don't miss out on your chance to get discounted advanced tickets. Artists interesting in supporting the benefit can also submit their work for the curators' review here.

Hey, Ed, I don't think it could ever be possible to get a better and nicer pair of co-chairs than you and Julie McKim! We at NURTUREart are soooooo glad to have you...
