André Agassi Foundation Unveils Artwork by Noted Contemporary Artist Romero Britto to be Auctioned
Noted Brazilian artist Romero Britto designed this year’s signature piece of modern artwork.
NEW YORK, NY.- In a prelude to the 14th annual Grand Slam for Children, the Andre Agassi Foundation will unveil this year’s signature piece of modern artwork designed by noted Brazilian artist Romero Britto on Friday, September 25 at 4:30 PM at the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy, 1201 West Lake Mead Boulevard. The piece will be 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 is revealed, Marsha Irvin, chancellor of the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy, Agassi and Britto will speak about the school’s mission to transform public education as well as the significance of the artwork. Guests will also have the opportunity to tour the school’s state-of-the-art campus.

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 will be 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.
