DreamFire Interactive announces the launch of the Manhattan Perceived Art Competition and Auction to assist victims of Hurricane Sandy.
New York (I-Newswire) January 15, 2013 - Today, DreamFire Interactive announces the launch of the Manhattan Perceived Art Competition and Auction to assist victims of Hurricane Sandy. The art competition will highlight artistic works that capture perceptions of various neighborhoods throughout Manhattan impacted by Hurricane Sandy. The top six artists who best illustrate the resilient spirit of New York City’s neighborhoods will be awarded thousands of dollars of cash and prizes. Winning entries will be auctioned off on February 15, 2013 and all proceeds will go towards the American Red Cross’ Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
WHY: In October 2012, Hurricane Sandy devastated the U.S. East Coast, claiming over 100 lives and damaged or destroyed over a half million homes and businesses, and significantly disrupted transportation and other essential services. In New York City alone, government officials estimate damages totaling $19 billion. Months after the storm, considerable work remains to be done to rebuild and restore what was lost. The Manhattan Perceived Art Competition and Auction seeks to raise necessary funds to contribute to these recovery efforts.
WHO: The competition will tap New York City’s vibrant arts community to showcase their talents through painting and photography. John Prince, of DreamFire Interactive, will host the auction, where winning artwork will be showcased. The auction will feature a keynote address by United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, a performance by Julliard's School of Music, and a special award presentation to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in recognition for his leadership during Hurricane Sandy.
WHEN: Competition entries must be received by February 11, 2013. The Auction will take place on Friday, February 15, 2013 from 6:30-8:30 PM.
