*** Benefit for Leon Shambroom ***
England. New Brighton, From The Last Resort. 1983-1985 by Martin Parr
Leon Shambroom, the 25-year-old son of Joan Rothfuss and Paul Shambroom, suffered a severe brain injury in a July 2010 house fire in South Minneapolis. Smoke inhalation and carbon monoxide poisoning have left Leon unable to walk or talk. He requires 24-hour care with daily tasks, and he will face other hurdles in the coming months. Things are likely to become complicated and very expensive owing to the typical bureaucratic hoops too often encountered by patients and their families in the aftermath of catastrophic medical events.
On July 14th, at the Weinstein Gallery in Minneapolis, we will be holding a silent auction for Leon. Over 50 renowned artists, both local and from around the world, have generously donated works to be sold in the silent auction. Please come to show your loving support to our friends in need, and enjoy a night of music, food and art.
Hosts: Alec Soth, Carrie Thompson, Brian Ulrich, Weinstein Gallery and The Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
With a musical performance by Channy from Roma di Luna
