Exhibition and Charity Sale

To give an internatiuonal exposure to  young contemporary artists from Senegal.

Alfredo Cuomo was an enthusiastic supporter of the Arts. He always encouraged young inspiring artists in the many countries he visited. Alfredo and Elena Cuomo especially appreciated African Art and decided to find a way to bring some of the new exciting artists, they had encountered in Senegal, to a wider audience. In 2008, they created and supported a painting competition to be held in Monaco. They selected a jury of African Art specialists in Senegal who viewed over 60 different artist’s work. 10 Senegalese Artists were selected  to bring their work to Monaco for the final stage of the competition.

In November 2008, at the Hotel de Paris in Monaco, an exhibition was mounted of their paintings. The highlight of the program was a special dinner auction evening which benefited the artists. Financial prizes given by the Credit Foncier de Monaco Bank, the Monaco Red Cross and the Cuomo Foundation, were also awarded to the winners.
