The Drawing Center—the only non-profit organization in the United States to focus solely on the exhibition of historical and contemporary drawings—will celebrate its 8th annual Benefit Auction, Drawing Gifts, on October 18, 2011 at Phillips de Pury in the Chelsea art district. Each year Drawing Gifts provides critical support for The Drawing Center’s programs and exhibitions. This year’s event is especially crucial as we break ground on ReDraw, a major renovation project to expand and improve our current space at 35 Wooster Street in SoHo.
Co-Chaired by Marianne Boesky, Michele Oka Doner, Stacey Goergen, Alexander Gray, Sarah Hoover, Mary Sabbatino,Stephanie Schumann, Jacqueline Tran, and Candace Worth, the event is expected to draw over 400 prominent guests including established and emerging artists, art patrons and collectors, corporate executives and New York philanthropists.
