Johnny Leo Projects Presents: Charity Art Auction Benefiting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

 

johnny-leo-artiholicsNew York – Friday, March 28, 2014

Last night my second art crawling stop was at The Lodge Gallery on Christie Street in Manhattan’s Chinatown for Johnny Leo Projects Presents: Charity Auction Benefiting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for the 118th Boston Marathon.  The show was a pop-up mix of street artists and contemporary artists who all donated a piece(s) to raise money for the Claudia Barr Program at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, one of the top cancer research facilities in the world.

The show is up at the gallery until March 30th, so if you want to see the pieces in person you only have a small window to make it over there.  If you aren’t in Manhattan but want to own a piece, you are in luck, works donated to the show are available to be bid on through Paddle8 here.  Auction ends 8pm Sunday, March 30, so you best check it out and make your bids ASAP.

I actually have been to this gallery once before a few months ago when I went to my buddy Josh Clark’s birthday party here.  The door in the back wall opens up to a speakeasy.  One of many NYC speakeasies that are trendy now.

The bar probably keeps the lights on better than what they normally sell out of the gallery.
