Art 4 Shelter
May 10, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Now in its 7th year, Art 4 Shelter has established itself as a highly anticipated community event that is Simpson Housing Services largest fundraiser of the year. This is a free event and guests have the opportunity to purchase original works of art with 100% of proceeds going directly to Simpson Housing Services, helping Minnesotans experiencing homelessness.
A night of shelter at Simpson is approximately $35 which makes the purchase of a 5×7 work of art at $35 that much more compelling. 8×10 artwork sells for $90.
This high energy exhibit starts with a preview hour and then explodes with the ringing of the 7pm bell when all attendees are welcome to take their favorite works of art directly off the gallery walls. At that point, they find out if they hold a piece by a famous artist or are the first to discover up-and-coming talent (all works of art are signed only on the back). New art will be continually replenished throughout the evening for all partygoers as the festivities continue with wine and treats.
There is also a preview art sale that afternoon, The First Look Luncheon provides an opportunity to purchase three artworks before the evening event commences. Tickets are available for $75 at Art4Shelter.org.
