Momenta’s 2009 benefit will present work by both emerging and known artists. Raffle tickets may be purchased until all the tickets are sold. The work will be on view at Momenta for two weeks, and then it will be re-installed at Sara Meltzer Gallery, located at 525-531 W. 26th Street in Manhattan, for the event.

The benefit event will be held on May 6 beginning at 5PM. At 6:30 PM the live auction will begin, continuing until all works have been offered.
