In its first major fundraising effort after closing its doors from April to September 2020, The Watermill Center is proud to announce an “Autumn Benefit Auction” as part of its annual end-of-year appeal.
The auction provides artists the chance to earn a 20 percent commission from the sale of their work, while the proceeds allow The Watermill Center to keep its doors open for its year-round artist residency and education programs, which annually reach over 40 international artists, nearly 1,000 local school-children and 150 educators each year.
The auction includes work by: Ville Andersson, John Atwood, Davide Balliano, Tahir Carl Karmali, José Carlos Casado, Emily Furr, Shaun Gladwell, Miles Greenberg, Candace Hill Montgomery, Dawn Kasper, Marisela La Grave, Erin Leland, Rachel Libeskind, Qinmin Liu, Mary Mattingly, Noel McKenna, Dr. Gora Parasit, G.T. Pellizzi, Kembra Pfahler, Yapci Ramos, Lars Daniel Rehn, Duke Riley, Marina Rosenfeld, Bastienne Schmidt, William Stewart, Basco Vazko, Claire Watson, Entang Wiharso, Robert Wilson and Joe Zorrilla.
Additional participating artists include: Marina Abramovic, Lindsey Adelman, Ai Weiwei, Dinesh Boaz, Melissa Brown, Clayton Calvert, Parker Calvert, Indira Cesarine, Laurence de Valmy, Jordan Donor, Michael Dweck, Frank Gehry, Lizzie Gill, Serge Hamad, Yung Jake, Anish Kapoor, Stephen Laub, Tara Lewis, Maximilian Magnus, Nicole Nadeau, Joshua Reames, Hope Sandrow and Ross Watts.
