We'd been teasing you with set up shots from the Juxtapoz 15th Anniversary Benefit Party that launched on Sat Nov. 14th. ( the complete set of install shots can be found on the gallery Facebook page) But, now it's time for you to check out the fruits of our labor. First of all, you know that feeling you got as a kid right before your birthday party was scheduled to start? Well that's generally the same feeling we get every time we open a new show.
So, surely, you can imagine the delight we felt when we looked around and the event space was packed! And as you've seen from the set up photos, that was quite the space to fill.
We'll let the pics tell the rest of the story.
Over 2000 people managed to make their way through the show. Though we made a valiant effort to touch base with everybody we wanted to, it was nearly impossible. The space was inundated with a sea of art lovers, artists and gallerists from all over the country.
There are so many things we would like to say about how incredible the entire experience was, but really, we think that the photos speak for themselves.
Needless to say, it was an immense pleasure working with Sa Studios and Juxtapoz. Sa Studios' hospitality goes above and beyond. We are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have participated in this landmark event.
The first half of the Jux Benefit Auction has raised over $100,000 for the Detroit Powerhouse Project. The second round opens November 24th @ Charitybuzz.com. All proceeds from both auctions will go towards the goal of buying and renovating 5 houses in Detroit. In an effort to stimulate their local economy, all renovations will be handled by local craftsmen. (Check out PowerHouse Project here).
