AMA New York International Women’s Day Fundraiser
March 8, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for AMA New York’s first fundraiser to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women for International Women’s Day. Enjoy live performances, music, and fine art with a glass of champagne paired with exquisite hors d’oeuvres, during New York Art Week in Manhattan’s art district thanks to the generous sponsorship of Morgan Stanley.
All ticket revenues will be donated to the Grace Institute, New York City’s leading tuition-free job training program for women. As a token of gratitude, AMA New York will recognize donations of $100 or more in post-event communications. Patrons who donate more than $500 will receive an original hand-painted bottle of Gran Reserva wine.
Pre-registered attendees will be entered to win an original Domingo Zapata masterpiece. Domingo is arguably the best Spanish artist of his generation and sells worldwide, his pieces average six-figures per piece.
Mix and mingle with fellow marketing professionals and world-famous artists such as BAFTAS Awards’ favorite artist Lincoln Townley, Palma d’Oro at the Biennale Montecarlo 2016 Somsak Chaituch, or Russian Fine Arts Academy’s Gold Medal Angel Orensanz, or George H.

About Domingo Zapata – Artist benefactor
Domingo Zapata is a Spanish-American artist born in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. Currently, Zapata maintains studios in his Gramercy Park townhouse in New York City, the Design District in Miami, and Hollywood. In these private ateliers, he produces Neo-Expressionist paintings as well as sculpture. He paints in both oil and acrylic, often incorporating mixed-media, collage, and graffiti.
This year the artist is preparing a poignant, commemorative mural for the lobby of Freedom Tower in Manhattan. The piece will be unveiled as part of the building’s opening ceremony and remain on permanent display. Additional commissions include a panel for the newly restored Colosseum in Rome as well as the lobby of the landmark Plaza Hotel in New York.
