MÉXICO Suite of 8 drawings by Alberto Lenz. Ink and watercolor on paper 2021

Jóvenes Adelante is pleased to partner again with local renowned artist Alberto Lenz, to support the Susi Beere Fund during the COVID-19 crisis. Just in time for the holidays!
MEXICO is a series of drawings in which Alberto Lenz expresses his vision of the country in these troubled years marked by a great crisis in three fundamental aspects: economy, health, and security. This creates a scenario in which many aspects of national life are questioned and in which it is not yet clear whether the country will move towards a better future or go back in history.

This 8 drawings suite titled "México" is offered now to JA's supporters at a very affordable price, $6,000 pesos each, framed. Pieces may be purchased individually or as a full suite.

Artist Alberto Lenz has generously offered to donate 50% of the sale of each piece to the Susi Beere Fund of JA. Buyers will purchase from the artist directly, and the artist will make the donation to JA. Purchases are not tax deductible.

Buy for yourself or as gift and help Jóvenes Adelante reach its goal of $10,000 USD for the Susi Beere Fund.

Susi Beere

About the Susi Beere Emergency Fund: Many of our current and incoming students will find themselves at the mercy of how well their institutions of higher learning adapt to the current reality, and how their families are impacted. It is Jóvenes Adelante's intent to use all resources we can afford to support our students...whether via our normal support, or special funds from both the Susi Beere Emergency and the Betse Davies Special Stars Funds.

Alberto Lenz

About the Artist: Alberto Lenz is recognized for his geometric abstractions linked to a diverse series of sources, from European Constructivism to Pre-Columbian Art. Using a series of basic patterns, which the artist calls "visual units," Lenz creates drawings and paintings that combine repetition and variation and an intense color palette with the overall structure of each work. With more than fifty solo and group exhibitions, Alberto Lenz has presented his work in Mexico City, Guadalajara, Caracas, Barcelona and New York and is one of the key figures on the artistic scene in our city.

TESTIMONIALS

"Having a good internet has become essential in times of pandemic and currently I have been taking online classes for several months, I am grateful from my heart to the Susi Beere Fund's donors for supporting me so that virtual classes come to my home." - Ana Hernández.
"Susi Beere's fund has been a great help to me, since through Jóvenes Adelante I have been able to provide the necessary financial resources to repair my most valuable educational tool in these times of virtuality, my computer, where the hard disk is checked completely damaged. Huge thanks for your support." - Daniela Luna.
"I lived in Puebla for my entire career, when the pandemic started, I returned to San Miguel, I left all my things, I continued to pay a rent that I did not use and it subtracted from the income I had from my scholarship. I got to go get my things thanks to the support that the Susi Beere fund gave me. At that moment I felt very happy to have gone to get my things and to have done the symbolic act of finishing my stage of living outside of San Miguel." - Miguel Padrón.

Jóvenes Adelante provides scholarships, mentors and other material support for San Miguel de Allende honors students seeking higher education. The Susi Beere Fund provides assistance to those students facing a sudden financial emergency.
