"art innovating life"

Eight Years & $50,000!

Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMugWith our recent sales/donations over New Year’s Eve, ARTvision has officially eclipsed the $50,000 mark in cumulative earnings—nearly $46,000 of which has gone directly to Atlanta’s own Positive Impact.

Over eight years
we’ve raised a total of $50,110. And we’re very close to breaking the $10,000 mark this year (we’re currently at $9,135) for “The Promise of Peace,” so discounted pieces will be available and you can help us jump over that last hurdle!

Watch this space next week for discounted pieces and other posts. Meantime, thank you for making this event so successful year over year.

Archive page.

ARTvision-8 Earnings Update: Just Shy of $50,000

With a terrific preview night and Main Event, we’ve earned $6,590 so far (see the results). Great thanks to all of our artists, donor/buyers and volunteers for making it happen! The best part? It’s still going on. Pieces will be up on this site starting Monday, continuing through New Year’s Eve.

Despite what we reported during the Main Event,
we’re still shy of the $50,000 mark in cumulative earnings. If we can earn another $2,500 or so this year, we’ll reach that threshold - AND continue to provide Positive Impact and its clients some critical end-of-year support.

So please… consider
making a donation to the agency through ARTvision. Watch the website this week for more - many of these pieces will make fantastic holiday gifts (hint, hint). - WP
