Any Brooklyn art lover is probably familiar with Wagmag, the helpful guide to the borough’s art spaces, and now it’s time to show them your support during their annual benefit.
The 2014 Wagmag Benefit will feature approximately 100 artworks that have been generously donated by local galleries and artists, available during the raffle portion of the event evening, Tuesday, May 27, 2014 from 7–9pm.
The evening and exhibition, which will be held at Kunsthalle Galapagos (16 Main Street, Dumbo, Brooklyn), will not only generate much needed funding for Wagmag, but will also reflect the spirit and personality of the Brooklyn art community it reflects.
- General Admission tickets to the event are $20
- Artwork Raffle tickets are $250
- VIP All Access tickets (which includes 4 early access tickets plus one Artwork Raffle ticket) are $350
Each raffle ticket guarantees you an artwork which you can select that evening. The raffle-style drawing will determine the order in which ticket holders make their selection. Check out the growing list of participating artists at wagmag.org/benefit.
