The ANDY Awards and B&A Help Make it Right
On the closing night of the international ANDY Awards, a charity art auction was held with all of the proceeds benefiting Brad Pitt's Make it Right foundation. The foundation is dedicated to rebuilding lives and homes in New Orleans' Lower 9th Ward with sustainable means. Bernstein & Andriulli artists generously donated many fine pieces of art for the auction.
The International ANDY Awards were established by The Advertising Club of New York, honoring creativity in advertising worldwide. The jury panel consists of internationally renowned creatives hailing from all types of backgrounds, including Shepard Fairey of Studio Number One and Vivian Rosenthal of Tronic Studio this year.
Make it Right was established by Brad Pitt when he toured New Orleans' two years post Hurricane Katrina and found that the Lower 9th Ward was still decimated. Its goal is to complete 150 homes, complete with native landscaping, micro-farms, rain gardens, and building new streets. Currently, 14 homes have been completed with another 19 under construction.
Works for sale included an original mixed media piece "Lotus Ornament" by Shepard Fairey, a rare, limited edition silkscreen of Sir Peter Blake's "Sgt Pepper's" Beatles album, and a photography print of Stephen Wilkes "T.V. in the Sand" from his time in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Wilkes "T.V. in the Sand" is part of a series that was for the World Monument Foundation.
Says Ty Montague, Chief Creative Officer, Co-President of JWT North America, and chairman of the 2010 ANDY Awards, "The amazing work provided by Bernstein & Andriulli artists was integral to the success of our charity auction benefiting the Make it Right Art Foundation."
