This weekend is the last chance to visit the Alumni Society Auction’s free preview in the Visual Arts Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, 15th floor. Over 100 works by SVA alumni, faculty, mentors and students are up for bid, with the proceeds going towards the Alumni Scholarship Fund. The live auction will take place in the gallery on Tuesday, September 13, 6 – 9pm; tickets are $150 ($100 for SVA alumni, faculty and staff) and are available for purchase through the College’s Web site, or call 212.243.7300. An online catalogue is available at svaalumniauction.cmarket.com.
In addition, the Alumni Society has decided that a portion of the auction’s earnings will be used to help SVA alumni affected by Hurricane Katrina. In the coming weeks, the Office of Campus Life and VASA will also be raising funds to help those affected by the storm and its aftermath. To get involved in on-campus fundraising or to make a donation, contact Associate Director of Student Activities Tina Crayton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
