Open Doors of Milford, 2011 - Charity Auction

I'm currently participating in the Downtown Milford 4th Annual Open Doors and Windows Art Exhibit and charity auction. This exhibition is presented by the Downtown Milford Business Association, and this is their biggest year yet with 37 Artists represented, using recycled doors and windows.

The opening happened last month during Oyster Eve, a traditional summer festival in the town of Milford, CT. During all this time, the doors/windows have been showcased across downtown Milford, thanks to the sponsorship of the local stores, restaurants and businesses, that hosted the artists' creations.

I was thrilled to create a door for this especial exhibition because it will be auctioned off, and proceeds will go to the Domestic Violence Services of Greater New Haven. The mission of Domestic Violence Services is to create an environment that supports individual safety and breaks the cycle of domestic violence.

Here's a close-up of the door I created using materials found during the deconstruction of my home and recycled into a new life, enjoy it!

ABOUT MY DOOR: Living in a construction site for over 20 months already, while remodeling our home, taught me how many times we ought to struggle through the discomforts of a “deconstruction” in order to “reconstruct”. This can be applied to a broader spectrum. Not only to the physical state of remodeling a building to make it better and fulfill our needs, but also to a more personal level, as a mean to better our lives. When we find ourselves in struggling situations that are hard to break from it’s always better to take the chance and “deconstruct” what we are familiar with to “reconstruct” a better life for us and for our love ones… regardless of the uncertainties ahead.

The doors and windows creations are gorgeous this year, so don't miss your chance to come back home with an unique piece of artwork, with the added bonus of having helped a great cause!
