Wu Tang 20th Anniversary Charity Event Set for Art Basel at Smile Design Gallery, 12/5
On December 5th at Miami's South Beach Delano Hotel, Dr. Lee Gause, Smile Design Gallery and WU HA | 20 20 join forces at Art Basel for the official Wu Tang 20th Anniversary Event, hosting works for sale from Liu Bolin, Mr. Brainwash, RETNA, Miya Ando, Lina Viktor and Fab 5 Freddy, generously offered by top art dealers Larry Gagosian and Eli Klein.
Performing the auction is Wu Tang member Raekwon, who has generously offered to assist the children of his hometown of Staten Island, by helping to provide free dental care. He will be our special guest in attendance on the 5th to show continued support for his community and Smile Design Gallery.
Smile Design Gallery is a social enterprise that provides free dental care to people in need by employing the sales of art to provide free dentistry for children and communities in need. With a wealth of celebrity support from the likes of Swizz Beatz, Rick Ross, Kris Humphries, Angela Simmons and more, Smile Design Gallery has grown exponentially over the last year. The hope is to turn the $250K of charitable dentistry done to date into millions to benefit uninsured families through Smile Design Gallery.
Also in attendance serving as hosts for the event will be Angela Simmons, Mr. Brainwash, Eli Klein, Alexander Hurst and Michael Huerta. Curated by Martin Galindo of Smile Design Gallery and Alexander Clark and Laura O'Reilly of The City Firm. Guest DJ sets by Fab 5 Freddy and Scram Jones.
"I am a believer that social enterprise will move the great masses of humanity forward. American children did not ask to be born in the poorest city in the country. These kids want laughter, compassion, and love. How do you monetize that? The social enterprise becomes the market for love. If we really want a world that works for everyone, with nothing, and no one left out. Then charitable giving has to be a serious part of our conversation." - Dr. Lee Gause, Founder, Smile Design Gallery
