New York, November 2, 2010 — Humanscale’s 10th annual Faces in the Wild auction benefitting World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is now available online with approximately 70 pieces of wildlife-themed artwork up for bid. Online bidding will be open through November 11 and the winning bidders can have their bids submitted by proxy at the main event—a cocktail party with live and silent auctions—scheduled for November 18, 2010 in Humanscale’s New York City showroom.
Prestigious artists and designers—including Black + Blum, Scott Wilson of MNML, Marcel Wanders and lauded nature photographer Frans Lanting—have created and generously donated wildlife-inspired artwork for this event. Humanscale will match all winning bids and donate all proceeds to World Wildlife Fund.
Since 2000, Faces in the Wild has raised more than $390,000 for WWF, including matching donations by Humanscale. The largest conservation organization in the world, WWF leads international efforts to protect endangered species and their habitats. By 2015, the organization hopes to conserve 19 of the world’s most important natural places—including the Galapagos and Congo Basin—and significantly change global forces like agriculture and climate change to protect the future of nature.
