Sail for life is the sailing community’s season of events held as a part of Relay for Life in SL. Activities comprise cruises, races, parties and opportunities for sailing communities across SL to come together in support of Relay for Life.
Of particular interest this year is a special Sail of Life Art Auction, which is being organised by Nber Medici. The auction will take place on the weekend of May 15th-17th, starting with a launch party (time TBA) on Friday, May 15th, and a closing party on Sunday, May 17th, again time TBA.
The parties and the auction will take place at the beautiful Holly Kai Park,which I wrote about back in November 2014. Art pieces will be display throughout the park, offering visitors and bidders the opportunity to explore the park and enjoy some truly unique pieces – and I do mean unique, although Nber and the park’s gallery manager, Autumn (autumnxrain) are seeking the help of artists across SL to make it so.
“We’d like this to be a nautical art auction,” Nber informed me, when we discussed the event. “And we’re inviting artists who might be interested to consider donating exclusive works, either 2D or 3D art, they have created on the theme, which we can then auction to the highest bidder, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Relay for Life of Second Life. ”
Artists who are interested in offering pieces for consideration in the auction can contact either Nber Medici or Autumn (autumnxrain) in-world for full details on requirements and on how to submit your work.
If you are interested in owning a unique piece of art, keep the weekend of the 15th-17th May marked in your diaries, and get ready to visit Holy Kai park and bid!
I’ll have more details on the event nearer the weekend, but in the meantime, details of all the Sail for Life 2015 events can also be found on the Sail for Life 2015 calendar.
