DC Modern Luxury - March 2008
"the WPA's much-anticipated gala on Friday, March 7, at the Katzen Arts Center is set to be one of the city's swankest affairs. Heralded as the most cutting-edge art auction in town, the event features a curatorial cadre hailing from Manhattan to Richmond. Of those picking the pieces, Marc and Sara Schiller of the renowned Wooster Collective will bring their favorite street artists' work and the National Gallery of Art's Sarah Kennel will highlight under-the radar photographers.
The auction will not only put new artists in front of the area's leading collectors, it will also raise much-needed funds for the new microgallery space and the organization's operations costs. "Our benefactors are now founding supporters again," says [Kim} Ward. "There's such a new different excitement, and they get to help decide where it's all going to go."
