"Recuerdos", Silent Art Auction Benefit for a Field Station in Amazonian Ecuador
This Silent Art Auction is being held to benefit a field station located in the Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador. The funds from this event will go to buying headlamps for the folks who work at this field station so they have improved means of navigating the station and forest after sunset. After reaching the monetary goal for this project, all extra funds will go directly to supporting the continued Dakota Access Pipeline resistance at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. There will be a short briefing about oil extraction in Yasuní National Park as well. The artwork being showcased consists of ink drawings and photographic prints by two artists related to their memories and observations while traveling in Ecuador, Peru and Brazil. This will be a quiet, informative evening and guests have the opportunity to walk away with some very meaningful, original artwork. Please bring extra headlamps if you have any. Hope to see you there!
