HEARTBID – ONLINE CHARITY AUCTION (27.04.20 – 03.05.2020)
MUCCIACCIA GALLERY SUPPORTS THE ITALIAN RED CROSS TO FACE THE CURRENT HEALTH EMERGENCY
APRIL 27 – MAY 3, 2020
In this scenario where the whole world has come to a halt, Mucciaccia Gallery wishes to support those who, with great sacrifice and courage like the Italian Red Cross, are on the frontline to help people during this challenging time.
Heartbid is an initiative brought together to help raise funds in favour of the Italian Red Cross.
Starting Monday, April 27 until Sunday, May 03, 2020, Mucciaccia Gallery will be hosting Heartbid, an online charity auction, accessible from our website www.mucciaccia.com, to benefit the Italian Red Cross. 100% of all funds raised by the online auction will be donated directly to Italy’s largest voluntary association.
As of Saturday, April 25 it will be possible to browse, under the section Heartbid, the complete list of artworks that will be auctioned by world renowned artists: Valerio Adami, Roberto Bernardi, James Busby, Ian Davenport, Jiri Dokoupil, Ben Edwards, Giosetta Fioroni, Rossella Fumasconi, Massimo Giannoni, Lothar Goetz, Hisao Hanfusa, Frank Holliday, Daniel Jouseff, Ria Lussi, Milo Manara, Gianfranco Meggiato, Roberto Miniati, Gianni Piacentino, Cristiano Pintaldi, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Piero Pizzi Cannella, Oliviero Rainaldi, Tom Sanford, Kwangho Shin, Raphaella Spence, Llewellyn Xavier.
“Since the beginning of the pandemic, during which our volunteers were always on the frontline, we had the chance to appreciate the immense support the cultural world showed towards our operations. Art, during this time in isolation is a powerful antidote, able to “give us wings”.
I would like to thank Mucciaccia Gallery for the strong effort and sensibility. Together we can make it”. In a statement, Francesco Rocca, President of Croce Rossa Italiana (CRI) and of Federazione Internazionale delle Società di Croce Rossa e Mezzaluna Rossa (IFRC)
Massimiliano Mucciaccia concludes “With Heartbid, Mucciaccia Gallery, together with the generosity of the artists, would like to support the incessant work of the Italian Red Cross. Over twenty painters and sculptors from all over the world have come together to donate one of their works of art. Let’s join forces, led by a spirit of humanity and solidarity in which every contribution can make a difference.”
We would like to thank all the artists who embraced this initiative with honour and enthusiasm, generously donating their artworks. We invite you to participate and support Heartbid; together we can overcome these difficult time.
