Patrizia Pepe is delighted to invite you all to the Fabula Exhibition from 11 to 26 May in the San Salvatore in Lauro Complex in Rome to raise funds for schools in Haiti, Guatemala, Tanzania and L’Aquila.
Children from Italian schools are also taking part in the exhibition, which uses storytelling as a means of learning about their own culture and the traditions of other peoples. The best drawings of fairytales will be displayed in the San Salvatore in Lauro Museums on the opening day alongside the works of established national and international artists; they will then be sold at the “Exhibition Auction” on 26 May as well as published in the exhibition’s second book-catalogue of fairytales.
THE EXHIBITION WILL BE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC FROM 12 TO 26 MAY 2010:
TUESDAY TO SATURDAY 10AM TO 1PM AND 4PM TO 7PM, CLOSED SUNDAY AND MONDAY.
The Fabula-in-Art Association, in collaboration with the Dak’Art Biennial of African Art will also host the works of African artists. This unique event will turn the spotlight on Rome as a leading promoter of African art.
Last year we built or supported schools in Angola, Sierra Leone and Madagascar to the great joy of the local children. As well as the proceeds of the auction, we will be able to donate part of the sponsorships.
The proceeds of the auction on the 26th will be donated in equal parts to:
Escuela Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (Rava Foundation), Haiti
Cittadella dello Studio di San Demetrio nei Vestini, L’Aquila
Istituto Comprensivo Don Lorenzo Milani, Pizzoli, L’Aquila
