The auction will be held on Friday, November 30th, 2007, 5-8pm, free admission, entertainment and refreshments.

Philadelphia, October 24, 2007-The PennDesign Graduate Fine Arts class of 2008 announced plans today to hold an art auction to raise funds for their spring thesis show. The auction, which will take place on Friday, November 30th, is entitled LiveNude Art. “The title has less to do with the subject matter of the art or the dress code of those in attendance, and more to do with the pleasurable and playful atmosphere of the auction,” explained Class of 2008 member Travis Heck. “These days, it is rare to find an auction that allows guests not only the opportunity to bid on works by critically noted artists, but also to drink, eat, and boogie down all in one fun and free evening,” continued Heck.

Artworks created by the faculty, students and alumni of the Fine Arts Program will be available in a silent auction. The highlight of the night will be a brief live auction featuring works by nationally and internationally respected artists including John Moore, Eileen Neff, Joshua Mosely, Zoe Strauss, Terry Adkins, Sarah McEaneeny, Robert Pruitt, Demetrius Oliver and others.

Live Nude Art will take place in the Meyerson Lower and Upper Galleries in MeyersonHall, located at 210 S. 34th Street in Philadelphia. Guests will be treated to the musical stylings of DJ PHSH and free refreshments for clothed guests will be served throughout the evening.
