Navigating Benefit v.13


The auction may be silent, but this year’s Benefit v.13 is fully interactive.

While you’re busy scanning the artwork on the walls, take a minute to scan the ten QR codes scattered throughout the room. Provided by Food for Thought, these codes will give you an opportunity to voice your opinion on the auction items.

Thanks to a screen provided by Benjamin’s Desk, you’ll have another chance to share your thoughts through live tweeting, using the tags @inliquidart and #Benefitv13. The best tweet of the night will get a free month’s membership to Benjamin’s Desk.


If you mourned the death of the Polaroid, then snap out of it with an event photo by The Impossible Project, which produces new instant film materials for traditional Polaroid cameras. They’ll be ready to capture you and your friends in the main hallway.

For fans of the moving image, Legion Industries, Inc. will be on hand to film the main night. This group of up-and-coming filmmakers from the Philadelphia area will be interviewing guests, so look for the traveling boom pole to grab some camera time.

You’ll even be able to spot images that move in physical space: Lawren Alice, co-founder of Gallery ML, will be on hand to body-paint model Lily Chesire.

Guests who stick around after bidding closes will be treated to a special performance from The Fresh Fuzion Collective, which sponsors innovative artistic projects.

If you get lost in the middle of it all, drag queen docents Messapotamia LeFae and Lance Pawling as Alaya Richmin will be there to guide and outglamour you.

We’ll see you Friday night at Benefit v.13, 6:30 – 9:30 pm at the Crane Arts Building, 1400 N. American Street. Purchase tickets here.

Wendy is a Self-taught Collage Artist. The main focus of her Mixed Media Collage Work is to intermingle the old with the new. I push boundaries to create & discover different processes in which to incorporate images of older, more worn items with newer ones into my work, all for the purpose of creating one fluid, mystical image of beauty.

Joe Vescovich's pieces are full of texture, layers and depth that can and need to be walked around and viewed form different points and perspectives. He engages the viewer to be active in the experience by encouraging interaction from differing perspectives. Many of his pieces have hints of sculptural qualities that pop from the wall. This creates shadows and movement within and outside of the piece.

Andrew Chalfen's colorful abstract-geometric paintings, drawings, and mixed-media pieces are dense, vibrant worlds of precisely rendered patterning, suggestive of aerial views, cartography, architectural renderings, psychedelia musical notation, urban-like densities, circuitry and digital life. His process is a mixture of focused intentionality and generative randomization strategies.
