The 2023 Alumni Art Auction is set for Saturday, Feb. 11th
The 26th Annual Alumni Art Auction will take place from Jan 17th to Feb 11th in our new Poole Art Gallery in the recently opened Center for the Arts. This year the Bloch Party officially becomes the Poole Party as we move the Art Auction to our new location. You are invited to join us for the inaugural Poole Party on Feb. 11th from 4:00 to 5:30 pm.
All proceeds from this fundraising event go directly to the Art Department to support our programs and provide scholarships to students. We have an exciting new format this year. Instead of a one-day event, the Alumni Art Auction will be a full-fledged exhibition in the Poole Art Gallery, which will be up for three weeks prior to the Poole Party on Feb 19th. Bidding will be open the entire time and will close on the evening of our party.
Invitations to participate in the auction are mailed each year to art alums; please let us know if we need to add you to our list or if you wish to help with the event or join our Alumni Board.
