Educate: A Charity Exhibition, Benefiting the Luminos Fund

New York, 7 – 11 February 2020

Christie’s is pleased to present Educate: A Charity Exhibition at Christie’s, Benefiting the Luminos Fund. Featuring the work of global emerging artists, the special exhibition supports the Luminos Fund, an organisation that provides second-chance education to children in Ethiopia, Lebanon and Liberia whose access to education is limited by poverty, conflict or discrimination. To date, Luminos has helped 132,611 children experience joyful learning with inspiring, long-term results.

The opening reception on 7 February will include a silent auction of the contemporary art on view, with works ranging from $250 to $20,000; in addition to performances of live art/poetry, dance and music; a ping pong tournament sponsored by SPIN; and light bites and drinks.

Join Christie’s for this special occasion and please do not hesitate to contact us for additional questions.

Tickets are $25, with all proceeds going to Luminos Fund.
