Young Hadassah France Mobilizes Paris’ Street Artists for Pediatrics

20Aug10

Young Hadassah France mobilized 31 contemporary artists to donate original paintings, photos and sculptures for a non-conventional gallery exhibit and party, with proceeds going toward the renovation of the pediatrics department at Hadassah Hospital-Mount Scopus.

The pieces of art ranged in mediums from photo portraits to works of graffiti and “street art,” but all shared the common theme of the street and the city. Sandrine Asseraf, member of the Young Hadassah France team, explained that, “The idea of this exceptional art exhibit was to celebrate and promote local artists who are right down the road, while supporting healthcare at Hadassah and around the globe.”

On June 22, the collection was displayed at a party and sale, where the artists and guests were invited to express their street art skills by doodling on the windows of the gallery.

Guests meandered through the exhibition halls and had the opportunity to mingle with the artists as the artists presented their work and their visions. The auction generated over 19,000 euros in total.
