Jóvenes Adelante is pleased to continue its partnership with local renowned artist Alberto Lenz, to support the Susi Beere Emergency Fund during the COVID-19 Crisis. $1,600 USD raised so far!

Susi Beere

Susi Beere Emergency Fund. Many of our current students, 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 Jovenes 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. In honor of Susi Beere's retirement after over the entire life of Jóvenes Adelante, we cannot think of a more fitting time to shore up the fund with your help.

6 NEW DRAWINGS

The artist's most recent series of drawings, entitled "Connections," is the artist's response to the social isolation experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic during the months of April and May. Six new drawings and 4 remaining (from part one) are offered now, to JA's supporters individually at a very affordable price, $4,500 pesos (200 USD), for each one, framed. Of course they can also be purchased in pairs or as a triptych. The first 9 of part one are sold, and a separate series entitled "Vibrations" is sold out.

Due to the COVID-19 contingency, some students and their families lost their jobs and required extra support. The Susi Beere Emergency Fund has come to their aid:

"I thought it would be impossible to finish my degree, but the Susi Beere fund helped me pay for my last semester, now I am a graduate. I will always be grateful!" - Rubén Torres
"I am very grateful to the Susi Beere fund, because I was able to pay 50% of my re-enrollment at the university and my internet service, I lost my job and my budget was not enough". - Elizabeth Cano
"I did not expect the contingency to take away my job, but Susi Beere's fund was a great help to cover my personal expenses, thank you, God bless you". - Saúl Palma
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. The series of drawings called "Connections" is the artist´s response to the social isolation experienced during the months of April and May 2020, as the result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
