NEW YORK, NY — In a prelude to the 14th annual Grand Slam for Children, the Andre Agassi Foundation unveiled this year’s signature piece of modern artwork designed by noted Brazilian artist Romero Britto on Friday, September 25 at the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy.
The piece was auctioned off the following evening at the Grand Slam for Children, with all proceeds benefitting the Andre Agassi Foundation and Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy, a K-12 public charter school in Las Vegas that strives to provide children with a first-class education.
Before the artwork was revealed, Marsha Irvin, chancellor of the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy, Agassi and Britto spoke about the school’s mission to transform public education as well as the significance of the artwork. Guests also had the opportunity to tour the school’s state-of-the-art campus.
Romero Britto, who is best known for his modern, expressionistic style that is infused with vibrant colors and eye-catching patterns, has dedicated himself to charitable artistic organizations throughout his career. The artist is partnering with the Andre Agassi Foundation for the second time; his work was auctioned off at the 2009 Grand Slam for Children benefit concert, headlined by Dane Cook, Daughtry, Tim McGraw, Brian McKnight and Lionel Richie at Wynn Las Vegas on Saturday, September 26.
