Event — The Sandy Relief Benefit Auction

P_M-relief

Prin­ted Mat­ter invites you to a bene­fit auc­tion. The Sandy Relief Bene­fit Auc­tion has three basic com­pon­ents: a selling exhib­i­tion of rare pub­lic­a­tions and oth­er donated works; an online, silent auc­tion of art­works on dis­play at the Rauschen­berg Pro­ject Space and a live auc­tion of selec­ted works that will close the Bene­fit on March 9th, 2013

Prin­ted Mat­ter, Inc., the New York-based non-profit organ­iz­a­tion com­mit­ted to the dis­sem­in­a­tion and appre­ci­ation of pub­lic­a­tions made by artists, will host a Bene­fit Auc­tion and Selling Exhib­i­tion at the Rauschen­berg Found­a­tion Pro­ject Space to help mit­ig­ate dam­age caused by Hur­ricane Sandy. Dur­ing the storm, Prin­ted Mat­ter exper­i­enced severe base­ment flood­ing res­ult­ing in the loss of 9,000 books, as well as sig­ni­fic­ant dam­age to their 36-year-old archive. Pro­ceeds from the Bene­fit will sup­port their recov­ery as well as aid the organ­iz­a­tion in its capa­city-build­ing effort to estab­lish a more dur­able found­a­tion for its ser­vices into the future.”
