Benefit & Auction Preview: Creative Capital Celebrates 15 Years

By Emory Lopiccolo

October 14, 2014

On Tuesday, October 21 Creative Capital will host their 15th anniversary benefit and auction at Studio 450 in New York City. The event will include a silent auction and a drawing for the winner of the Miami art fair raffle (the winner will receive a three-night stay at the Delano Hotel South Beach from December 4-7 and special tours of the 2014 Miami art fairs). The benefit will see performances by awardees Sanford Biggers and Mood Medecin, Jace Clayton, Daniel Romain, and Kristina Wong.

Each year Creative Capital also partners with an artist to create an edition for the benefit. This year’s special edition is a photograph by Connie Samaras offered to everyone who purchases a premium ticket. The photo is from Samaras’ “Edge of Twilight series,” which captures an all woman, predominantly lesbian, RV retirement community located in the southwestern desert.
