RELEASE: Christie’s to Offer Works Donated to Benefit Storm King
NEW YORK – In its December 3 Post-War and Contemporary Art Day Sale, Christie’s will present a grouping of seven works sold to benefit Storm King Art Center. Each of the contemporary artworks has been generously donated by a Storm King artist in recognition of the Art Center's 60th anniversary. One hundred percent of the hammer price will support Storm King's work to steward its 500-acre Hudson Valley landscape, support artists and some of their most ambitious works, and offer a unique place where art, nature, and people come together. The grouping encompasses examples by artists including Mark di Suvero, Rashid Johnson, Martin Puryear, Ursula von Rydingsvard, Richard Serra, Joel Shapiro, and Johnny Swing.
John P. Stern, President, Storm King Art Center, remarked: “I'm tremendously grateful for each artist’s generous donation of artwork in recognition of Storm King’s 60th Anniversary. I truly value these relationships and I am proud to collaborate with the artists represented in this auction through our collection, long-term loans, exhibitions, and programs. Their support feels especially meaningful this year, as we more profoundly feel the value of experiencing art in nature and reaffirm Storm King’s vision to be a place of discovery and inspiration.”
Kat Widing, Specialist and Co-Head of Day Sale, Post-War and Contemporary Art, added: “Every visit to Storm King is an adventure and each vista is ripe for discovery. On my last trip, I saw sculptures by Richard Serra, Ursula von Rydingsvard, and Mark di Suvero magically fold into the rolling hills. The choice lots in our upcoming sale, generously donated by these artists and others, provide collectors with the rare opportunity to bring the magic of Storm King into their own home. Christie’s is thrilled to be able to partner with Storm King for their 60th anniversary to support their programming and stewardship of the Hudson Valley landscape.”
