May 6th AMREF ARTBALL honoring EL ANATSUI honorary host JACK SHAINMAN

The ArtBall 2017 invite is here! This year we have an even more fabulous event planned for Saturday, May 6th  – and we are hoping to sell it out! Along with honoring one of the greatest artists of our time – El Anatsui, we are thrilled to have secured Alex Cruz as a DJ who has done Summit at Sea, the Rio Olympics and Afrikaburn, as well as DJ Cuppy, Nigeria’s tourism ambassador, Cuppy has played events around the world, including the MTV Africa Music Awards and the Tatler and Christie’s Art Ball, and Young Paris, of Roc Nation, will be performing! We have Senegalese Chef Pierre Thiam providing us with amazing food, and of course, over forty pieces of Contemporary African Art up for sale- LIVE on Artsy today!  One of our artists,Tahir Carl Karmali, was named to the Forbes 30 under 30 after ArtBall last year – a perfect example that the value of this genre of art is soaring.


In addition, proceeds from ArtBall will go towards our innovative healthcare programs that span across 35 countries and touch millions of people throughout sub-Saharan Africa every year – and it’s more important than ever to ensure funding for health programs abroad, especially for women’s health, is maintained.
