Artists Rally for Tara

© Tara Expeditions Foundation

At the charity auction held on June 27th in partnership with Artcurial, 27 artists including several well-known for their street art (Space Invader, Jon One and Speedy Graphito…) offered their talent, and created original artwork, each one using a replica of the hull of the legendary expedition ship Tara.

Thanks to the artists’ mobilization and buyers’ enthusiasm, 124,000 € were raised for the Tara Foundation. These funds will enable the Foundation to continue state-of-the-art scientific research, bringing new information to a very large public, especially younger generations, raising awareness throughout the world wherever he schooner travels, and encouraging people to learn and understand tomorrow’s Ocean.

The Tara Foundation warmly thanks the participating artists for their commitment and generosity, as well as the Maison Artcurial and the agnès b. Endowment Fund for their precious support.
