Latinas 4 Latinas is pleased to announce the 58 artists who will participate at CONNECT 2018 Silent Art Auction and Benefit Cocktail Party. Our admiration for these artists goes beyond their talent! We are humbled by their generosity in donating 50% of the proceeds of the sales of their artwork auctioned at the event. We are thankful to each and every one of them for their readiness to help and willingness to make a difference in the Washington, D.C. community.
With 107 artworks being auctioned at CONNECT 2018, carefully curated by our wonderful Curator Maria Gabriela “Gaby” Mizes, Latinas 4 Latinas cannot be more excited about our fundraising event on September 22 at the Mexican Cultural Institute. We would like to highlight that CONNECT 2018 has become a platform not only for established and emerging local and international artists, but also for artists with special needs where they can exhibit their talent and contribute to a noble cause. Painters, photographers, and sculptors are among the participating artists; Curator’s Office, Make Studio, Reyes+Davis, RoFa Projects, are some of the participating galleries at silent art auction.

About CONNECT 2018 by Latinas 4 Latinas
CONNECT Silent Art Auction fundraising & benefit cocktail party brings the D.C.area and the arts community together to support the efforts of Nueva Vida, a non-profit organization that was founded in 1999 to fulfill the growing needs of the medically underserved Latino women affected by cancer in the Washington, D.C. area. The goal of CONNECT 2018 is to raise $50,000 to help Nueva Vida so that they continue to provide affordable and accessible healthcare, in addition to acting as a moral support to these afflicted women.
At 6:00 pm, Curator Gaby Mizes will be hosting a meet-and-greet and a private tour of the art auction for all VIP ticket holders. The curated selection of 107 artworks represents the work of 58 artists, many of whom will be present. Thanks to the work of Gaby Mizes, CONNECT 2018 is now a platform not only for established and emerging local and international artists, but also for artists with special needs to exhibit their talent and contribute to a great cause.
Latinas 4 Latinas and Curator Gaby Mizes invite you to a special night that will CONNECT your heart to a noble undertaking and awaken your love for the arts.
