As part of the upcoming Fundraising Gala in March, we're planning a unique art auction as part of the fun and excitement. 17 (and counting) talented and award-winning artists have donated art works to the La Passeggiata auction, including Luann Bice, Sharon Birzer, Stephanie Bower, Dodi Fredericks, Cynthia Esselman, Heidi Favour, Tom HoffmannBeAnne Hull, Anita Lehmann, Holly McKinley, Alan Maskin, Betty Merken, Lara SwimmerKristen Scott, Sylwia Tur, and Katherine L. Wright. The work will be on display at the evening gala and will preview on the Civita Institute website a few weeks before the event.

All proceeds from art work sold through the auction will support the Civita Institute Fellowship and residency programs as well as our other programming. The proceeds also enable the houses, library, grounds, and archives of the Civita Institute to receive the necessary repairs, maintenance and loving care they need to house our programs. Stay tuned for beautiful + incredible art for purchase!
