Franziska Knuppe is the celebrity backer of the 15th “door” on BMW’s Art Advent Calendar – a project in which ENERGETIX is participating for the first time this year – and is to open “her” door at the Jumeirah Hotel in Frankfurt am Main.
The internationally successful model – along with the actor, Ralf Bauer, among others (see previous FROGBLOG report) – is one of 24 backers for the works of art that the respective artists are donating to charity. As the backer for the 15th “door”, Franziska Knuppe visited Ilona Arndt at her studios in Hanover to join forces with the artist and paint a picture for the calendar.
And today, on Saturday, 15 December 2012, the 15th “door” on the larger-than-life advent calendar is to be opened and the day’s specific work of art revealed at a festive event being held at the Jumeirah (MyZeil Gallery) in Frankfurt. Incidentally, it’s the first time that the XXL Art Advent Calendar is also being staged in Frankfurt am Main in addition to Berlin and Munich.
Besides the artist, Ilona Arndt, who is donating her work of art, and her backer, Franziska Knuppe, the management at ENERGETIX Bingen, which is contributing to the project’s success by making a large donation to the „Artists for Kids“ charity, will also be in attendance at the event.
A further highlight besides the unveiling of the work of art for the Art Advent Calendar will be the presentation of an entertaining short film showing the production of a second joint work of art by Ilona Arndt and Franziska Knuppe. You can watch this short film here!
Interested readers will find all 24 “stories” and photos of the works of art donated by the 24 artists in the special edition of “Charity Magazin Dezember 2012”. The 24 films may also be watched on an online Advent calendar at www.kunstadventskalender.de. www.kunstadventskalender.de.
