LUMP SUM 2019 Benefit Auction

LUMP SUM BENEFIT
Friday, April 5, 6-9pm
LUMP, 505 S. Blount St. Raleigh, NC 27601
Free, no ticket required
100% of proceeds go to LUMP 

 

Lump’s first fundraising benefit, titled LUMP SUM, will occur Friday, April 5, from 6-9. The benefit includes a silent auction of over 72 original artworks, performances by Crowmeat Bob, Dan Melchior, and Jasmyn Milan, a memory capturing installation by Mollie Earls. Moon By Moon Apothecary (Chanelle A. Bergeron) will be providing herbal tonics and elixirs. The first issue of the Blount Force Magazine will be released as well! All this while DJ Gallimaufry helps guide us through the evening’s events.

Seats to an elaborate and performative dinner by Victor Lytvinenko will be available for purchase. These seats are limited and will go fast.

There will be other pieces, made especially for the benefit, that will be available for take home that evening.

There will also be several one of a kind items available by raffle throughout the evening.

Bidding will remain open through April 27th. Bidders, both near and far, can check in on their bid after the April 5th benefit event via email.

Due to Lump’s long existence, it is often misconstrued that the gallery is privately funded with paid employees and is exempt from funding concerns. The reality of Lump couldn’t be anymore different. Over the years Lump has built one of the premier artist-run exhibition spaces in North Carolina. Our mission has been to create a platform that is rigorous, inclusive, expansive, intergenerational and timely, reflecting the range and depth of the contemporary art world today. For the majority of this time we have done so without institutional funding or support, relying on volunteers and on donations to fund programming and pay bills. Two years ago Lump was awarded a programming grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation. This allowed us to continue to develop programming and remain open. We are now at a juncture where we need your help in order to continue. We need funds to pay rent, support programming and move forward, with hopes of creating a position for a properly paid Director and other staff. It is more important now than ever for Lump to exist within the cultural landscape of a conservative south. We would love to persevere and thrive, but for now we continue to “Push the Ship”.
