Anyone quick enough to purchase a ticket or lucky enough to be invited May 4th to the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (MACM) was witness to a yearly spectacle put forth by ACCM, ARTSIDA, and hordes of volunteers. Generous sponsorships and charitable donations helped make this evening of music and art a reality. Live painting by Zilon, musical performance by Sarah Neufeld of Arcade Fire, and an exciting art auction helped to raise funds for ACCM, who provide support for those living with HIV/AIDS in Montréal. Thanks goes out to TD, Galerie D, ENCADREX, thomas&cie, Vargas Restaurants, Les Brasseurs RJ, and everyone who gave their art, talent, time and love to making this happen.
I was humbled and very thankful to be awarded the Emerging Artist Prize presented by SDC du Village and selected by ARTSIDA5′s Curatorial Committee. I am positive that Yabusame found a good home with whomever purchased it that night.
Comments are welcome, and see you all again next year!
