RAIR will host its 4th Annual Trash Bash and Silent Auction on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at the Ice Box Project Space, 1400 N. American Street in Philadelphia. This animated and fun-filled evening will include a VIP reception before the event at 5:30 PM, where guests will have first access to bid or buy-it-now on an array of works by local artists, Trash Boutique items, and Philly-centric packages and experiences.
RAIR is thrilled to be honoring John Ollman at the 2017 Trash Bash. For nearly fifty years John has been an advocate for the arts in Philadelphia through his gallery, Fleisher/Ollman. An early proponent of ethnographic, folk, and self-taught artists, John himself seeks to dismantle these artificial terms: "I have spent my career as a dealer trying to break down the walls that exist between 'high' and 'low' art forms."
Not only has Fleisher/Ollman been a leading voice in these fields, but has provided an important platform to artistsparticularly emerging artists in Philadelphiawho are in dialogue with this legacy.
Join us on November 15th as we celebrate John and his radically inclusive and influential vision.
