Art 4 Shelter

May 12-May 13


Art 4 Shelter showcases the works of hundreds of generous artists. Over 1,000 original pieces will be displayed anonymously at Glass House and offered for fixed, affordable prices ($35 for a 5”x7” image, $75 for an 8”x10” image, etc.). These prices reflect the cost of housing a shelter guest for one night.

Attendees are invited to explore in person and then pluck whatever art compels them right off the walls, not knowing until later if they’ve been created by an established favorite or an emerging artist. It’s like a treasure hunt, a night of discovery, and a showcase of our massively talented creative community all in one.

Art 4 Shelter is a one-day fundraiser this year, but there’s plenty to see and do! This year will include both in-person and virtual art sales, including:
First Look Luncheon | May 12, 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m.
Exclusive first look at and a chance to purchase original Art 4 Shelter artworks. Enjoy a delicious lunch with complimentary wine. Tickets are available at www.simpsonhousing.org/art4shelter.
In-Person Art Sale | May 12, 6:00 p.m.–9:00 p.m.
Exhibit and sale of original artwork, photography, and ceramics. Free and open to the public.
Auction | May 12, 11:30 a.m.–9:00 p.m.
Online auction featuring ceramics, jewelry, sculptures, large pieces of artwork, and more from local artists. Browse the auction from the event or the comfort of your own home! Free and open to the public.
