It’s time for our 2nd Annual Hearts for the Arts fundraiser to benefit the students in the Worcester Public Schools! Last year we solicited local artists to work creatively with wooden heart forms, which were transformed into unique pieces of art. This year, we have invited artists to create something with a heart-based theme in the medium of their choice. Worcester Public Schools teachers and other area artists have created works in wood, glass and metal, and on canvases and in paper and fabric!
Many of the items are posted on the home page of the Worcester Public Schools website (www.worcesterschools.org) and bids can be accepted by emailing the Visual Arts Liaison, Kathleen Ivanowski, at Ivanowski@worc.k12.ma.us until midnight on June 15th.
We then invite the public to join us at Club Maxine’s on Friday, June 17th from 5:00 to 8:00 PM where the online bids will be carried over for the live silent auction portion of our fundraiser. Donations for admission are inexpensive at $10.00 per person, which includes hors d’oeuvres, and a cash bar. We are also offering chances to own a beautiful framed photograph by local photographer Amy DeMar. Second prize is a $50.00 gift certificate to CC Lowell.
Winners of the auction items may write a check to Culture LEAP, our fiscal agent, or pay with cash. Proceeds will directly benefit the students in the Worcester Public Schools, as the teachers will use the money to purchase art supplies.
With our heart-felt thanks, we can all help to keep the arts alive in Worcester!
