At the Allianz Business To Arts Awards at the Bord Gais Theatre on 1 September the Dublin Airport Authority Award of €5,000 was presented by Minister for Arts, Heather Humphreys TD to Pallas Projects, a Dublin based artists’ co-operative. Pallas won it for an event sponsored by Whyte’s auction house which raised funds and awareness for the group.
Whyte’s supported Pallas Projects through hosting an auction of works donated by Pallas Studios artists to generate much needed funds for the artist-led organisation.
Whyte’s provided management, staff and technical support, actively engaged their client base of over 20,000 collectors worldwide and published the auction catalogue on global websites. The auction was held on 9 October 2014 in The City Assembly House, courtesy of The Irish Georgian Society.
Whyte’s also arranged to have live bidding from around the globe to the 250 year old building – a combination of a centuries old auction room with today’s technology.
Whyte’s are the first auction house to win a coveted Business To Arts Award in the 24 year history of the event. Whyte’s were one of 160 nominations for the awards. Whyte’s were also runners up in another category – Best Small Sponsorship.
