Take a Walk on the Wild Side with Humanscale

Aug. 12, 2004

Humanscale's Fifth Annual Competition and Auction to benefit World Wildlife Fund (WWF) - Faces in the Wild - is on its way. Last year's event brought over 350 attendees and earned more than $25,000 for WWF, including a matching gift from New York City-based Humanscale. Each year, there is more interest, excitement, and exposure for this event, and expectations are very high for 2004.

For the first time, Faces in the Wild will also exist as a live auction on the Humanscale website (www.humanscale.com). This will allow for greater participation worldwide and exposure for these incredible art pieces.

To allow for more artistic creataivity and expression, Humanscale is continuing the broader parameters for this year's event. Designers are requested to submit artwork of any type (mask, sculpture, painting, drawing, photograph, woven design, etc.) that represents the face of a non-domesticated animal. All entries must be:

1) Tangible - printed matter, painted matter, photography, sculpture, etc. (electronic entries cannot be accepted).

2) Easily transportable.

3) Made from environmentally friendly, non-perishable materials.

4) Representative of the face of a non-domesticated animal.

In addition to the auction, all entries will be judged by a distinguished panel representing a wide range of design disciplines, with a winner selected in each of the following categories: Best Use of Environmental Materials; Best Representation of the Essence of the Animal (personality, presence, look); and Best Overall Design.

Winners, who will each receive either a Humanscale Freedom chair or the new Humanscale Liberty chair, will be announced at the event on Tuesday, September 28, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at the Humanscale Showroom, 11 E. 26th St., 8th Floor, New York City. Attendees will include supporters of World Wildlife Fund in and around New York City, members of the A&D community, facility managers, upscale consumers from the New York Metro area, and the media.

If you would like to support this event by contributing a piece of original artwork, please contact Karen Brooking at (212) 353-1383 or e-mail ([email protected]). Submissions must be received by September 10.
