Children’s Cancer & Blood Foundation (CCBF) Second Annual Contemporary Art Auction

On Tuesday, September 22nd, the Children’s Cancer & Blood Foundation (CCBF) hosted its second annual Contemporary Art Auction at Sotheby’s in New York City.

The evening was a huge success with 90 artists generously donating works and tons of supporters coming out for an evening of art and socializing.

Participating artists included: Jasper Johns, Donald Baechler, Richard Serra, Richard Pettibone, Tom Otterness, Massimo Vitali, Machiko Edmondson, Zhang Huan, Abelardo Morell, Matthew Pillsbury, Rita Ackermann, Mickalene Thomas, James Nares, Andres Serrano, and Will Ryman, among others.

Auction proceeds support the work of the CCBF, which funds clinical care, fosters research to help understand the causes of childhood cancers and blood disorders, and sponsors fellowship training of pediatricians in the subspecialty of pediatric hematology and oncology. These funds ensure that no child will ever be turned away for services, regardless of his or her ability to pay.

Part two of this amazing event will start October 1st on ArtNet. There is still a large array of wonderful pieces going for very competitive prices, so don’t miss out!
