Residency Unlimited Funraiser
The Art of Travel

New York based Residency Unlimited (RU) is hosting its annual Funraiser and giving you lots of incentives to participate.
Three types of tickets to the event help to support Residency Unlimited’s projects and reward you with three forms of prizes. With all three tickets you are entered into a raffle to win one of the unique Artists Books on Travel or an incredibly artist-inspired suitcase (conceived by Tron Gia Nguyen) and containing many goodies including a John Baldessari beach towel.
With a $75 Ticket you can enjoy the party and support Residency Unlimited.
With a $150 Ticket you enjoy the party and will be supporting the presentation of a new work by local and international artists in New York.
With a $500 Ticket you will enjoy the party and will be sponsoring a six-month curatorial fellowship for a NYC-based emerging or early career curator to work closely with RU’s roster of artists-in-residence, plus you will be able to select and receive an artwork created by an RU artist.
Can’t make it to the event but still want to participate?
You can support by donating $10. With this ticket, you will be entered into a raffle for the chance to win a copy of one of the Artist Books on Travel.
Artists can also participate with a $10 ticket that enters you into a raffle for the chance to win a month-long residency in China, this November 2013. Housing, studio, and airfare will be provided.
Only professional artists with at least three years of experience will be considered.
