The third annual ArtBall is a premier contemporary African art auction and philanthropic event that aims to raise funds and awareness for Amref Health Africa. ArtBall will honor artist Toyin Ojih Odutola with the Rees Visionary Award.

Admission to the event includes an open bar, passed hors d'oeuvres, entertainment including a DJ and a special performance, and educational activations about the work Amref Health Africa does to create lasting health change in Africa.
The event this year will be held in A/D/O, a creative space located between the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Williamsburg and Greenpoint. With over 23,000 square feet of space, A/D/O houses gallery space, a shop, a restaurant, and workspace for creative professionals and start-ups
All proceeds from the event will support Amref Health Africa's groundbreaking work in training local African health workers and building health systems at the community level.
