THANK YOU TO ALL OF THE ARTISTS who donated their precious, creative renditions of “Albuquirky Little Houses” for our annual fundraiser! Your creative energy and dedication allowed our fundraiser to be a success!
We had over 145 artists create 178 little houses which were put up for auction at Sumner & Dene during Frank McCullough’s opening reception.
(A huge thank you to Roy, Sumner & Dene & Frank!)
People were flurrying around from little house to little house to decide which ones to place bids on — sometimes outbidding one another on a favorite artist/rendition.
The end result is that all of Sumner & Dene’s, OFFCenter’s and other artists in the city helped to raise over $5500 for OFFCenter so that we can keep providing a safe studio space, art materials, workshops and outreach programming FREE of charge to the public!
Thanks also to the House Tour Committee volunteers, home owners and House Tour ticket purchasers which all helped to raise another $5000 for OFFCenter Community Arts Project.
We truly believe art making builds community and with this fundraiser, we see how the community cares to keep free art making opportunities for everyone available!
THANK YOU EVERYONE who attended, made or purchased little houses, went on the house tour, volunteered their homes or their time!
