Benefit v.15 Wins Back the Winter with Landscaped Light

At Benefit v.15, Win Back the Winter with our annual silent art auction and fundraiser. InLiquid invites guests to Crane Arts on Saturday, February 7 for a winter beer garden, heated and tented to beat back the winter chill. In lieu of the stars, nighttime dazzle will be provided by colorful LED trees donated by Hoffman Design Group.

The local, small business hails from Folcroft, PA, but they raise the green thumb to over 350 clients in Philadelphia, suburban Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and New York City. A previous sponsor of InLiquid’s Benefit, Hoffman’s 25,000 square foot facility is now home to an installation by Leah Reynolds, who donated the piece to Benefit v.13.

The Hoffman team can be found putting Mother Nature’s stylist to shame around the city, at venues like The Union League of Philadelphia, The Bellevue, The Shops at Liberty Place, The Wanamaker Building, and the PHS Pop-Up Gardens. There they sculpt the brick and mortar of buildings into soft and supple life with exterior landscaping, or pump a heartbeat back into interiors with floral arrangements and holiday displays.

Through abstract geometric paintings, Philadelphia artist Melinda Steffy translates music into color patterns, exploring ideas of translation, information and data, and how music weaves throughout human experience. Melinda Steffy’s RUINATION DAY series (acrylic on wood panel) deconstructs folk and blues songs that reference the date April 14, which is when Lincoln was shot, the Titanic hit the iceberg, and the Black Sunday dust storm devastated the Midwest. Melinda Steffy’s BACH PROJECT series (watercolor on paper) converts classical music by J.S. Bach and Bela Bartok into grids and pie charts. Rather than hear one note after the other through time, the paintings show all of the notes and rhythms simultaneously on one visual plane.
