In the wake of Typhoon Haiyan’s devastation, the just-launched Filipino-American Museum (FAM) will host a fundraiser this Thursday, November 21, to benefit the National Alliance for Filipino Concerns (NAFCON), an organization coordinating US-based private aid to the Philippines. The event, which will take place at Dumbo’s Galapagos Art Space, will also coincide with an online auction of donated art on the Paddle8 platform. Among the artists who have donated art are Anicka Yi, Margaret Lee, Lucien Smith, Carissa Rodriguez, Ei Arakawa, Jason Loebs, Josh Kline, and Jon Santos.
“This whole event came together in two days. It originated from a chance meeting with Robert Elmes at Galapagos Art Space, followed by his offer to help with a fundraiser and from there developed swiftly,” FAM co-founder Nancy Bulalacao told Hyperallergic. “We also plan to organize another event to feature and present the [donated] work,” she added.
The funds raised in Thursday’s event and the subsequent online auction will be spent on food, water, and medical supplies and distributed by Philippines-based groups. Tickets are $10; sale information and further details are available on the FAM website.
