BOXING FOR WHITE BOX: HOLIDAY SEASON RAFFLE

BUY BENEFIT TICKETS HERE

Ray Smith's depictions of boxers are both an allegory of the art world's many strategies to overcome all odds and a reminder of the battles under-recognized artists are confronted with in the art world today. Following the Hurricane Sandy disaster, which hit the NY arts communities hard, his boxing series seems more relevant than ever.

BOXING FOR WHITE BOX: HOLIDAY SEASON RAFFLE
PREVIEW: TUES, DECEMBER 11, 11AM - 9PM
RECEPTION + RAFFLE: WED, DECEMBER 12, 7 - 9:30PM

White Box invites you to buy tickets not only to win an array of amazing raffle items, but more importantly to support the many unaffiliated artists in need of exposure and critical curatorial attention. In addition, a portion of the proceeds will be designated to those arts communities affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Buy one FEATHERWEIGHT ticket and instantly win an artwork; pool together with others to buy into the HEAVYWEIGHT or CRUISERWEIGHT level for a chance to win either a one-week solo/group exhibition or host an event at White Box; purchase a BANTAMWEIGHT ticket and you could win an essay about your/a friend's work by a TBD critic; or buy into MIDDLEWEIGHT and LIGHTWEIGHT to gain a chance to choose cool artworks - it's your choice! All will go home champions in their fight for the arts.

The Raffle offers a diverse, exciting package of six levels. Click on each level to find out what you can win and buy your tickets today!
