Massive Art Benefit in NYC

Saturday, May 19, 2007
art 4 animals

Saturday, May 19th. Hundreds of folks streamed into the generously donated space at Jivamukti Yoga School in NYC for a party and art auction to support the rescued farm animals at the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. About 170 works were on display, and there were also tables and tables of donated retail items for raffle and sale.

Our heartfelt thanks to the scores of artists who went to bat for us and contributed art. A full list of the participating artists can be found here, and you can see a small sampling of images here.

Arguably as colorful as all the artwork was an amazing spread of food (and wine) provided by New York’s top veg restaurants & catering services … and our buddies at Little Vegan Monsters (even one of our board members, Ashley Lou Smith, rolled her own weight in veg sushi rolls). Click here to see the full list.

Last, we’d like to thank an amazing team of volunteers who moved with SWAT team-like precision to get the entire room set up in less than 2 hours. They are too numerous to mention here but You Know Who You Are and please accept our gratitude!
