We’re hosting the first annual Rabbit Island Benefit on June 1st in NYC to raise money for this summer’s Artists in Residence (75%) and the conservation of parcels of land in Detroit during the annual fall tax auction (25%). Over the past two seasons visiting artists have supported themselves while traveling to the island. This year we are attempting to help our residents with a small amount of financial assistance. We’re also attempting to exemplify the idea that doing or making should be tied to conservation. It’s a good formula. Please join us.
Participating Artists include: Ron Gorchov, Mike Perry, Liz Clark, Annie Varnot, Aaron Wexler, Lucy Engelman, Andrew Ranville, Miwa Koizumi, Archie Lee Coates IV, Ports Bishop, Emilie Lee, Peter Buchanan-Smith, Christian De Vietri, Nicole Lavelle, Charlotte X.C Sullivan, Miles Mattison, Sara Maynard, Yuko Oda, Jennifer Maravillas, Leif Parsons, Tolland Mansfield, Nicole Lavelle, Meg Whiteford, Marlin Ledin, Kelly Geary, Isabella Martin, Mary Rothlisberger, Hayley Severns, Sara Darnell, Emily Julka, Helen Lovelee and many more.
