A fundraiser to benefit the Children’s Bereavement Center (CBC). Featuring a solo exhibition with original works by urban street artists SKI and 2ESAE of UR New York, and a chance to win a one-of-a-kind Driade Nemo Armchair and limited edition prints painted by the artists. You do not have to be present to win, but join us for a fun night that will kick-off the week of Art Basel where you can meet and greet the artists.
All proceeds go toward supporting the Children’s Bereavement Center, which offers free peer support for children, teens, young adults and caregivers who are grieving the death of a loved one. Ticket price of $150 includes admission for you and a guest, and a raffle ticket to win a painted Driade Nemo Armchair. With the purchase of five tickets, you are supporting one child through the CBC for an entire year, and you will receive one extra raffle ticket for free! And, all tickets are tax deductible.
Creating and enriching community partnerships through art and design, Anima Domus, South Floridaâ€™s premiere destination for contemporary Italian home furnishings, has partnered with street artist collaborative UR New York (Mike Baca aka 2ESAE and Fernando Romero aka SKI), Pop International Galleries in New York City, and Italian contemporary furniture company Driade to actively support and give back to their most admired local charity, the Childrenâ€™s Bereavement Center, which offers free peer support for children, teens, young adults and caregivers who are grieving the death of a loved one.
Over the next two months, armed with a white swiveling Nemo Armchair by Fabio Novembre donated by Driade and Anima Domus, UR New York will paint the iconic face in their cutting-edge urban industrial style where it will be completed at a LIVE painting event at Pop International Galleries in New York City, on October 3rd.
â€œItâ€™s an amazing cause and it hits close to home. We both come from unstable backgrounds and have had to mold our way to where we are now,â€ says SKI. â€œAny chance we get to give back through our work interests us. No one did that for us, so weâ€™re trying to set an example for others — for the youth,â€ says 2ESAE.
Follow Anima Domus, UR New York, and Pop International Galleries on Facebook and Twitter to see the progression of the Nemo flourish from start to finish. Once completed, the newly painted and one-of-a-kind Nemo will be available for viewing in New York City at Pop International Galleries until October, when it will then be transported to Miami, to be displayed at Anima Domusâ€™ Design District showroom to coincide with Miami Art Basel festivities.
On December 4th, Anima Domus will hold an exclusive event â€œFacing the Future: In Support of the Childrenâ€™s Bereavement Center and Our Communityâ€ with catering by Egg & Dart. During the event a raffle will determine the lucky collector who will take home this unique work of art. All proceeds collected from the raffle will go toward furthering the mission of the Childrenâ€™s Bereavement Center.
During the week of Art Basel and Design Miami December 5th – 9th in Miami, visit Anima Domus to see the artists of UR New York paint another original Nemo Armchair at a LIVE painting event alongside an exhibition of their artwork artwork in conjunction with Pop International Galleries.
â€œDoing good for our community, and giving back to a city that we all love so much, is one of the core values of our company as well as the core values of all who are participating in this worthy project,â€ says Marconi Naziazeni, owner of Anima Domus. â€œThe Childrenâ€™s Bereavement Center is a very active institution that provides vital support free of charge to many families in a moment of extreme need. They truly need our support. â€
