Art Benefit for Emilie was a silent auction and sale of artworks contributed by the Cooper Union community. All proceeds went to Emilie Louise Gossiaux—an artist, fellow student, and very dear friend who was involved in a bicycling accident in October 2010. More than 100 artworks were contributed.

Organized by Rachel Appel, Alan Lundgard, and the Cooper Union Art Student Council. Invitation design by Kyle Richardson. Poster design by Kyle Richardson and Alan Lundgard. Letterpress printing by Alan Lundgard. Made possible by innumerable volunteers and friends.
