Housing Works Photo Auction

Whenever I'm asked, I donate work to good causes to be auctioned at fund aisers. From the PTA fundraiser at my kids schools to the recent Leave Out Violence Fundraiser, it's a great way to help out and have your work seen and appreciated.

Which brings me to the reason for my post today. Here's a great cause to support with your love of photography: The Housing Works Design-on-a-Dime event tomorrow night in NYC. Here's a sample (from Cig Harvey) of the work that will be on sale:

What: Housing Works Fifth-Annual Design on a Dime silent photo auction, featuring over 40 photographs from top fashion, celebrity and fine-art photographers.

Who: Work by more than 40 photographers including Pamela Hanson, Alistair Taylor Young, Hank Willis Thomas, Todd Selby, Eric McNatt, Neal Slavin, Ingvar Kenne and more

Where: Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W. 18th St between 6th and 7th Aves.

When: Thursday, May 7, 2009 from 6pm to 9pm

Tickets: Tickets include access to the opening night Design on a Dime party, featuring cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and incredible preview shopping of 50 room vignettes by top interior designers. Tickets start at $150. To purchase tickets, visit www.housingworks.org/dime or 212-645-8111 ×164

I agree, good solid charity auctions are a great way to have your work seen and appreciated. I'm always looking for charity auctions to put a piece into and I think it's important for any artist to do the same... Very often as artists we are working double lives so we can continue doing what we love to do and I think it's hypocritical to not think of others who struggle with their life circumstances.
