Art department holds silent auction as fundraiser event

Art Club students are fast at work, drawing, painting and sculpting for the upcoming silent auction. The silent auction will take place April 5-8 in the Art Department.”This is our club’s biggest fundraiser and the one event I am asked about most by other faculty and campus employees,” said Derrick White, art department instructor and Art Club faculty sponsor. “It would be great to have the community get involved as well.”The art pieces up for bid will range from 2D art, 3D art, prints, paintings, and drawings, to sculptures and ceramics. White said that it will start at 10 a.m. on April 5 and will close at 2 p.m. on April 8 in the art lobby in Jenkins Hall. The silent auction will have a $2 minimum bid and will go up from there. The bidders must offer a higher monetary price and place their names on a piece of paper with name and contact information available so that the highest bidder can be informed if he or she has the winning bid. All the funds from this event will go to assist the Art Department. The funds also go to scholarships for the art students. Donations will be used for trips as well.
