Moscow, Tverskaya 3 street, -2 floor Hotel The Ritz-Carlton, Moscow, Russia

In 2017, Melisa Erdem, a student from The International School of Moscow, was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and fought for her life in the intensive care unit. Fortunately, Melisa survived and soon was discharged from the hospital. Living with this horrific condition meant that Melisa would be tied to hospitals for the rest of her life. There was only one permanent solution – a heart transplant.

Although doctors, concerned with Melisa's state of health, first recommended delaying the operation to avoid possible complications, Melisa has recently got an infection, meaning her heart transplant surgery needs to take place as soon as possible.

Born out of hope and a genuine belief in people's kindness, 'Art to Heart' is an artistic cry for help and a glorious tribute to altruism. It's less of an ordinary exhibition or an auction and more of an immersive experience that invites you on a journey of empathy and creativity to the depths of Melisa's heart.

The auction will consist of two parts: Fine Art and Contemporary. You can participate in the auction both online at and in person at Cube.Moscow at The Ritz-Carlton, Moscow.
