PROJECT ART 2011: SECOND ANNUAL FUNDRAISER IN NEW YORK CITY

In November 2011, Project Paz in collaboration with L-atitude and Banamex presented the second annual Project Art, an art auction and fashion sale at 82 Mercer in New York City. The sales from this evening raised over $140,000 in support of a program by the Fundación del EmpresariadoChihuahuense, A.C. (FECHAC), Ampliando el Desarrollo de los Niños (ADN, extending children’s development), which creates after school activities for children to have a safe place to learn and expand their academic skills.

For the second year in a row, Anne Huntington from AMH Industries and Amanda Alvarez curated the thirty-six original works of art inspired by Juarez that were generously donated by influential artists such as Patti Smith, Leo Villareal and MozaSaracho. During the event, fashion e-commerce site, L-atitude, showcased a collection of one-of-akind dresses and accessories created by thirteen acclaimed designers –Christian Cota, Juan Carlos Obando, Michael Bastian, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Wes Gordon, Thakoon, Yigal Azroël, Peter Som, Rag & Bone, Sara Beltran, Anndra Neen, Eddie Borgo and Alejandro Ingelmo, using traditional hand-woven Mexican fabrics donated by the MuseoTextil de Oaxaca. Alongside the fashion installation, a short, artistic film shot by RuvenAfanador featured flickering images of the collection on a Frida Kahlo look-a-like. The one-of-a-kind fashion items, as well as dedicated Project Paz products (t-shirts by Samudra and string bracelets by Dezso) were made available on shoplatitude.com.

Celebrated guests including Alejandro Ingelmo, Angelica Fuentes, Carlos Campos, Diego Boneta, Eddie Borgo, Jaydy Mitchell, Lynn Yaeger, Michelle Harper, Susan Segal, Valerie Boster and Woody Johnsonwere present at the starstudded gala where Margarita Zavala, former First Lady of Mexico, made a statement in support of the organization’s commitment to promoting peace in Juarez.
