The CCA, fresh from its transitional year, is back in full force with great shows and its annual "fabulous evening of costumed carousing and raucous masked revelry." Besides being consistently one of the most fun parties in town, the auction is typically stylish. DJs T.T. and A.G. do the music with visual effects by VJ Hypothetical Entity, food and $5 martini bar provided by the Tesuque Village Market along with wine and champagne. The whole shebang will be emceed by Honey Harris.
This year's live auction items feature terrific and star-studded experiences including:
- A weekend for two in Las Vegas with tickets to The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil. Recently glimpsed on the Academy Awards show, this performance was born from the friendship between the late Beatle, George Harrison and Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte.
- A walk-on role in a movie by Lionsgate Films. Now, really, you KNOW you've always wanted to"¦.
- A private portrait session with Nic Nicosia. World-famous artist Nic Nicosia will photograph you in your home or in his studio. Nicosia's images are in many private and public collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum.
- A room re-decoration by American Clay, with an area rug from G. Coles-Christensen and Victoria Price of Victoria Price Art + Design to help pull it all together. Make your space sublime!
- Tickets to the US Tennis Open and lunch with Martina Navratilova. You will be mistaken for Anna Kournikova"¦
- And more"¦
The silent auction is equally delicious with works by terrific local artists including Mary Bennett, Ciel Bergman, Lisa Corradino, Munson Hunt, Tim Jag, Jennifer Joseph, Thomas Mason-Mancuso and others.
