Honoring Zanele Muholi with the Rees Visionary Award
ArtBall is not a typical New York City charity gala. ArtBall is a celebration of African cultures - of African art, African music, and African healthcare solutions. It is a Contemporary African Art auction, an immersive learning experience, and a party.
ArtBall 2019 will honor South African artist and LGBTQI+ visual activist Zanele Muholi with the Rees Visionary Award. Named for our late founder, surgeon and artist Dr. Tom Rees, the Rees Visionary Award is given to artists we feel are creating exceptional work that educates, inspires, and emboldens the viewer through these challenging times. Muholi’s work, which addresses issues of human rights, especially that of the LGBTQI+ community, is vital and powerful.
Join us on Saturday, April 27th to raise money for our world-renown health programs, and for what Swizz Beatz deemed the most epically diverse event of the year!
After February 27th, all tickets will go up by $25 each. Get your early bird tickets today!
