Higher Power—Brothers@: Benefit Auction 2021

Artsy presents Higher Power—Brothers@: Benefit Auction 2021.

As part of a new partnership, Artsy will launch Greenhouse’s first social impact auction, “Higher Power—Brothers@: Benefit Auction 2021” on November 29th in support of Brothers@. Founded by Dariel Vazquez, Brothers@ is a dual-beneficiary high-school retention and college persistence organization with the mission of improving the academic and social-emotional outcomes of young men of color in both secondary and post-secondary education. The nonprofit organization is designed to empower men of color to pursue their academic goals and enter the workforce, particularly in industries that have lagged in diversity.

Curated by rising star K.O. Nnamdie—recently featured in New York Observer’s “Arts Power/50” issue—the auction features works by 15 artists who have lent their support to Brothers@’s mission through their participation. By leveraging the collective platforms, this auction marks a unique opportunity for collectors and artists alike to support the next generation of men of color to enter, shape, and lead the future of the art world.

“Higher Power speaks to the many points of entry into my diasporic experience; a collective connection to ancestry. This selection of works features potent moments of resilience, uprise, and ultimately triumph.” —K.O. Nnamdie

Bidding will be open exclusively on Artsy and will close on Friday, December 10th, at 4:00pm EST.

Each work ships from New York City. Shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer.

Applicable sales tax will apply to works shipped to and within the US.
