On Tuesday, April 21st, 2015, Storefront for Art and Architecture will celebrate over three decades of advancing innovative positions and providing a platform for dialogue and collaboration across disciplinary, ideological, and geographic boundaries.


Storefront’s 2015 Spring Benefit will be the first public event to be held at 432 Park Avenue, designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects, prior to the official opening of the building. The event will honor artist Do Ho Suh and architect Thom Mayne, internationally recognized figures who have participated in Storefront programming throughout the years.


A silent auction featuring TRANS-themed works by artists, architects, and designers will allow benefit guests to take home artworks with transformative power while supporting and benefiting Storefront for Art and Architecture’s mission and programs.


Attire:  Transparent,  Translucent,  Transgressive

Transfigured, transparent, translucent, transsexual, transatlantic, transcendent. Join us to tranversally transform transactions of generosity and capital at our 2015 Spring Benefit.


This year’s theme, TRANS, focuses on particular aspects within the work of the honorees, including transcultural and transparent details of Do Ho Suh’s materialization of architecture elements, as well as Thom Mayne’s transgressive form making.
