New York, NY (PRWEB) October 31, 2011
Zeitbyte Digital Media (http://www.zeitbyte.com), a leading provider of professional webcasting and video production services, will live webcast the Children’s Museum of the Arts’(CMA) Art Auction 2011 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on November 2, 2011.
The seventh annual event, which will be held at 82 Mercer Street in New York City, raises essential funds to directly support the museum’s unique school and community outreach programs that provide invaluable arts programming to undeserved children throughout New York.
Paddle8’s Alexander Gilkes will lead live and silent auctions featuring pieces by Andy Warhol, Cecily Brown, William Quigley, Yoko Ono, James Nares, and 95 other established and emerging artists.
Zeitbyte is sponsoring the event’s webcast, which will enable museum patrons who cannot attend in person to watch the auction live from any computer, tablet, or mobile device.
“We are excited to partner with CMA on this project. On a personal level, I’m a huge fan of the work they do, and I’m happy Zeitbyte is able to help contribute to the museum’s success,” said Zeitbyte President Gary Kahn. “Live streaming the auction will not only give CMA additional exposure, but will also give bidders unable to attend the feeling they are ‘in the room.’”
"CMA is thrilled to be partnering with Zeitbyte Digital Media to further extend the reach of this event, our most important fundraiser of the year," said Lucy Ofiesh, CMA's Director of Marketing & Special Projects. "Proceeds from our annual art auction support CMA's free and subsidized programs that reach thousands of children and families each year at the museum, and in public schools, hospitals, and community venues across the city. Being able to broadcast this event means that even more people will be able to participate in the event and help us raise these critical funds."
