Modus Union 2010

2nd Annual MODUS UNION 2010
Presented by Labels For Love


MODUS UNION: An exclusive evening of Fashion, Art and Philanthropy!


Labels for Love founder Mary Amons created “Modus Union”, a unique event to collaborate our active philanthropic, political, and artistic communities within the Nation’s Capital. Modus Union was formed from two words that represent unification with positive intent. The Washington, DC area is the leading world capital and we are seeing the combination of artistic talent and a youthful energy not seen since the Kennedy era. The time has come to collaborate with these disparate groups of influence to showcase opportunities in an effort to make a positive social and philanthropic impact by maximizing our impact on the Nation’s Capital and its global influence. Labels For Love beneficiary partner this year is Fran Drescher, actress, uterine cancer survivor, and advocate, and her Cancer Schmancer Foundation. Cancer Schmancer is dedicated to saving women’s lives through early detection and prevention of cancer.  Fran and her Foundation are continuing to make a major global impact, through sharing her personal story as well as educating women on the causes of cancers and the importance and methods of early detection

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
