Wa Project Presents:
A Photography Auction benefiting Architecture for Humanity
Japan Tsunami Relief
25CPW, 25 Central Park West
Wa Project is pleased to announce a photographic exhibition and auction benefiting Architecture for Humanity’s rebuilding efforts following the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
The auction will be held at the 25CPW gallery in midtown and 100% of the funds raised will be donated to Architecture for Humanity’s work in rebuilding devastated communities in the affected area.
The night will be a celebration with a display of photographic art, music and Japanese cuisine from Blue Ribbon Sushi with liquid refreshment from Sapporo and more. In addition, all ticket holders will be entered into a raffle.
The donated auction prints follow the theme of 和 (Wa). This ancient name for Japan also describes a cultural concept which underpins much of Japanese society. It has no direct translation in English, although the closest term that could be applied would be the idea of ‘harmony.’ Prints from a diverse range of photographers who have interpreted this theme in a variety of ways will be featured and provide you with a unique collection.
