Carolyn Ramo, Artadia’s Executive Director, said, “This partnership with Phillips comes at a time when Artadia’s mission has never been so transformational or imperative. Artists are the integral fabric of our communities and cultural conversation, and we are deeply grateful to the donating artists who allow us to raise crucial funds. We are also so thankful to Phillips for recognizing the impact of Artadia’s programs, allowing us to change the course of artists’ careers.”
Rebekah Bowling, Phillips’ Co-Head of the Day Sale of 20th Century & Contemporary Art, said, “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Artadia at this momentous time in the organization’s history and grateful to the artists who have so selflessly donated their work to support this cause. Since its founding twenty years ago, Artadia has enriched the lives and careers of over three hundred artists. Through the sale of these works at auction, alongside the results of the April Gala at Phillips, we can help to ensure that this important organization can continue in their mission for the next two decades and beyond.”
