This year, 20 111 young learners were provided with the tools they need to continue their education. Also the two beautiful artworks of Pipilotti Rist and Sabeth Holland contributed substantially to these great news…
The Room to Read Gala Switzerland 2022, held at the Hotel Widder in Zürich, showcased two powerful and unique artworks that were auctioned live by Stefan Puttaert in aid of the charity. Pipilotti Rist donated a wonderfully sensuous painting and Sabeth Holland one of her well known Flowerfloats, a stunning wallinstallation in soft and gentle colors.
Here below you a few impressions of the art inspired highlights, with Pipilotti Rist’s “Glory to the Benefactor Room to Read” and Sabeth Holland’s “Moonray Flowerfloat” (Internal link to the description).
Both positions reflect and honour the substantial and powerful energy that comes from education, unite mutual aims worldwide and are supported by kind and generous donors, who mostly prefer to remain anonymous. Once again the full amount gathered goes to long term educational projects in the developping world. Sabeth Holland supports Room to Read since 2014 with her most appreciated art donations. Continuity is essential to the young learners.
A warm THANK YOU to Nadine Lopez, Dr. Geetha Murali, Stefan Puttaert, Henriette and Jürgen Bauer, Daniela and Henry Hirzel, and all the volunteers and friends of Room to Read, as well as to my powerful and admired artist friend Pipilotti Rist for making this year’s Gala so very special and such a great success.
