Luhring Augustine is pleased to participate in Michelangelo Pistoletto’s REBIRTHDAY with a collection drive to benefit Children’s Aid Society.
The Mayans believed the world will end on December 21, 2012; Pistoletto does not interpret this as an end, but rather as the beginning of a new phase – the start of a more utopian society he calls THE THIRD PARADISE.
Events are being organized around the world to mark this important day, and Luhring Augustine is participating by asking for donations of children’s art supplies. All donations will be given to the Children’s Aid Society.
Art is a vital tool with which we reflect on the past and envision our future. In order for there to be a true reconciliation of humanity in THE THIRD PARADISE, it is essential that children engage with art and embrace it as a means of creative expression, exchange and dialogue.
Each person who makes a donation will receive a complimentary artist catalog from a wide selection of Luhring Augustine publications. Donations will be accepted from Monday, December 17th – Thursday, December 20th, 10am – 6pm at our Chelsea and Bushwick locations:
Luhring Augustine Chelsea | 531 W 24 St | New York, NY 10001
Luhring Augustine Bushwick | 25 Knickerbocker Avenue | Brooklyn, NY 11237
We will accept the following items:
All items should be new and in original packaging.
