Artists Beat the Flood 2, ABTF2, July 2014
A first for many, a second for a few. Artists Beat the Flood took place at a summertime pace. With 16 splashing visual artists, 5 harmonious music groups, and numerous generous partners, we were able to launch a wonderful event, and a unique experience where the Red Room hosted a live art and music event at Huashan Creative Park 華山文創區, a first for both the Red Room and Huashan. Thank you to venue host Huashan and Emily Wang, coordinator for libLAB Studios, and to Brendon Chen from Escape Artist contributed the canvases, attended, and participated.
Artists Beat the Flood 1, ABTF 1, September 2009
A charity art auction held at the Lili Gallery in Tienmu on Sept. 5, raising a remarkable half million NT dollars (about US$16,000) for victims of Typhoon Morakot.
Nineteen artists, both expatriate and Taiwanese, participated in the event, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday. Painters brought their own supplies and were given a large (100 x 150cm) canvas to work with when they arrived, filling up two floors of the uptown bar/restaurant with the pleasant spectacle of artists hard at work, side by side for a good cause. It was creativity in action, a wonderful sight to behold for visitors who flowed through the living museum throughout the day, at times with children in tow. Silent and online auctions were also held. (Excerpt from Trista di Genova’s article in The Wild East, September 25, 2009)
