Bid to Give!
Proceeds from the Art Auction benefit the CherryArts innovative year-round education and outreach programs. CherryArts delivers year-round education programming to nurture future generations of art supporters and expose young minds to the many social and individual benefits of experiencing and creating art. Throughout Colorado, schools face declining arts budgets, limiting access to arts and culture experiences for most school-age youth. CherryArts has designed mobile education programs to increase arts accessibility for youth in Metro Denver and surrounding areas. Programs include the Mobile Art Gallery, Mobile Art Cart and the Student Art Buying Program.
By simply placing a bid with the Art Auction, you can help CherryArts continue to reach out to more individuals in the coming year. For more information on our education programs: CherryArts Education
