Omnes-October 15, 2020-Reading time: 2 minutes

The Francisco de Vitoria University has organized a charity art auction "Ayudarte" with the aim of creating a scholarship fund for students affected by COVID-19.

"AyudArte, artists helping artists".This is the name of this auction for which renowned contemporary artists from the world of painting, photography and sculpture have donated one of their already created or unpublished works, with the objective of raising funds for a study grants aimed at students from 2nd to 4th year of the Design, Fine Arts and Architecture degrees of the UFVwho are seeing their continuity of training at the university compromised by situations of ERTE, ERE, layoffs or others of a similar nature derived from the socioeconomic effects of COVID 19.

Spot for the presentation of "Ayudarte".

It is about 27 lots The works of different modalities in which we can find signatures such as the photographers Ouka Leele, Lupe de la Vallina, the poster artist Cruz Novillo or the sculptor Antonio Azzato. The works are exhibited these days at the Hall of Building H from today until October 21. In addition, the following have been organized guided tours that will be held from Monday through Friday from 10:00h to 14:00h and from 16:00h to 20:00h. 

The auction, moderated by Pablo Melendo Beltrá, will be held on October 22 in person (as far as possible), with the possibility of bidding by telephone.

A project that, as it stands out, Pablo López RasoThe director of the Fine Arts and Design degrees shows that "the works that these artists selflessly donate for our charity event propose that art is not mere entertainment, that it is in fact a statement of intent in favor of life and against fear and a pretext to vindicate a model of culture capable of generating hope in all that unites us as people who seek good, truth and beauty.".
