1st MostraMi exhibition / event: 20 artists and 100 artworks for charity
The first exhibition / event of MostraMi project, in which 20 emerging artists exhibited a selection of their works at Sala delle Esposizioni of Palazzo Giureconsulti in Milan, has come to an end.
Milan, October 18, 2010. The first MostraMi project's event has just ended, its aim is to spread the visual arts (painting, sculpture and photography) among young people, to introduce emerging artists to the local public and, last but not least, to do charity.
The day gave to the over 600 visitors the opportunity to propose an evaluation on the works on display and make a purchase option on the preferred ones. 14 of the 100 works were sold. 50% of the remuneration collected by the artist went to the non-profit organization "Insieme per i Bambini", for charity.
The charity project is ambitious: the sum of money raised will be used for the construction of 12 accomodations dedicated to welcoming children who come to Milan, accompanied by their parents, to obtain medical treatment that is impossible to find elsewhere. The address of the structure is Via S. Achilleo n. 4 in Milan.
MostraMi is a new non-profit artistic-cultural project, created to give online and offline visibility to emerging artists and young talents in the field of painting, sculpture and photography. It is possible to do all this through: a web platform (www.mostra-mi.it) on which young artists can register for maximum visibility and to participate in a series of exhibitions / events useful for making them known to the public, to galleries and to patrons of the area. MostraMi is a project sponsored and supported by Forum Net Economy, the Province of Milan and the Milan Chamber of Commerce.
Other sponsors are: Kaspersky Lab Italia and Agfa HealthCare, Corel and Tenuta Setten. MostraMi is a Gruppo97cantieri sonori and M.O.STRA's project.
