I hope you have had a good winter (or summer in the Southern hemisphere).
From Spain and with huge enthusiasm I hereby confirm that we already have set dates for the exhibition of Mzungu Project!! As I have told you before, paintings (and drawings) made by followers of the project (from Spain and all the way to New Zealand) as well as photos taken on site at the Congo will be displayed. Amateurs and professionals have been using all their talents to help this cause. I lack words to thank you enough for your support!!
The exhibition will run from May 10th to May 13th and the opening event will take place on May 10th at 19:30. Where? At a very cool and nicely located art gallery called Espacio Cultural Abierto which is owned by Clara Tengonoff. Plenty of artists display their art there! The address is Calle Doctor Velasco 6, 28014, Madrid (Subway station: Atocha. Exit: Ministerio de Agricultura). Thank you Clara!
There will be lots of surprises. Videos on the project will be on screen for you to see the schools, art works will be auctioned, photos will be available for purchase and… a “One Thousand and One night of Happiness” Smartbox worth 100€ will be raffled!!! Who would not like a wonderful weekend escapade for two people in Spain or other European countries?? It could be yours!! Thanks so much, Smartbox for your generosity. Counting on a leading brand on the market is a privilege.
Besides, we will also count with the participation of another jewel, Bodegas Lerma (Lerma Winery) from Arlanza D.O. They will delight us with a wine coming from a region that is booming. Well, their vineyards are right between Ribera del Duero and Rioja so imagine the grapes and the wines… I also want to taste it!! Thanks a lot, Bodegas Lerma for your support too. Your participation is an honor.
There will be snacks too, of course. And you are all invited!! The more people on May 10th, the better! It will be a great opportunity to meet in person and enjoy an evening among giving hearts. And there will be more surprises… I will tell you about them!
To your, my beloved artists, I would like to inform you that the deadline to hand over your works will be April 30th so that we have enough time to organize the available space and other details. Contact me here in the coming days to coordinate the delivery, ok?
As usual, thank you so much for your interest in Mzungu Project and I hope to see you soon. We will have a great time!! And please help me spread the word and tell your people to come along!!
