The WBAI Benefit Art Show and Auction has begun with the opportunity to preview and bid on artworks prior to the silent auction evening, WEDNESDAY, NOV. 7, 7:30pm at the Steve Kasher Gallery, 521 West 23rd St.,NYC.
Participants can go to wbaiauction.org to preview and bid on a wide array of artwork donated by well known distinguished artists. Many pieces in the Art Auction, like WBAI, reflect a concern for progressive political issues as well as an array of artists’ concerns.
WBAI has been honored by an outpouring of support for the auction by NYC’s art community. All 2-d and 3-d media are included in the show; painting, works on paper, art books, sculpture, printmaking, photography, posters, and collage. They include contemporary works, as well as noted historical pieces donated by the estates of prominent artists in honor of their affection for WBAI. Notable amongst these is the attached 1969 WBAI staff portrait, by Richard Avedon; testimony to the station’s prominent, enduring, and vital  role in New York’s political and cultural life.
The live auction will be attended by WBAI producers, the contributing artists, as well as celebrity guests. Tickets can be purchased at  www.give2wbai.org.
