Every year the photo community comes together at the CPW Benefit Auction to mix and mingle, celebrate leaders in the field, and bid on excellent art — all in the knowledge that they are supporting artists. CPW’s benefit brings together a wide gamut of the arts community, including collectors – both seasoned and aspiring, patrons, artists, and all around fans of CPW!
This year’s CPW Awards & Benefit Auction celebrated of CPW’s 40th Anniversary. The highly anticipated benefit took place on Thursday, October 12, 2017 at Affirmation Arts (523 West 37th Street, New York, NY) and honored Dr. Deborah Willis with CPW’s highest recognition, the Vision Award. Proceeds from the event support CPW’s programs, which champion artists through residencies, workspace and other support, and provide opportunities for the photo community to engage with thought-provoking exhibitions, workshops and professional resources.
