Estimados miembros de la FIA,
Es grato anunciar la subasta silenciosa de arte, VIDART, que se realiza para apoyar a la asociación Nueva Vida, dedicada a ayudar a mujeres hispanas con cáncer o sobrevivientes. La misma, fue beneficiaria del programa de Voy Contigo llevado a cabo durante nuestra 56ª Conferencia Anual.
Lourdes Escaffi Venes
The year 2020 has been an unusual time for everyone and difficult for many families. Joining together collectively in a generous and supportive way has made it more endurable.
Nueva Vida is an organization based on the solidarity of women cancer survivors … who stand united with other women … with donors who support families of our Latino community … families that are made up of essential workers … our heroes on the frontlines of everyday life.
Inspired by this solidarity, Nueva Vida has launched the second edition of VIDART, a fundraising art auction event that features extraordinary work by generous artists who share the healing power of art with us.
With 92 pieces by 70 artists from 16 different countries, VIDART will take place from November 30th to December 13th in a silent online auction format. For instructions on how to participate please refer to page #6 of the digital catalog.
From December 2nd through December 4th we are providing a gallery for private previews with over 30 pieces exhibited at the Mexican Cultural Institute. For appointments to visit this display please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is the impressive VIDART digital catalog for you to browse, enjoy the spectacular art and be ready for the auction to secure your favorite pieces. Your art purchases will contribute to the work and mission of Nueva Vida that consistently helps Latino families and their community.
We also invite you to meet some of our artists during two Facebook (FB) Live events being held in November through our Nueva Vida page (@NuevaVidaInc) and enjoy our kick-off event on December 2nd also through FB.
