Yale School of Art Students & Faculty Auction Work to Raise Money for Haiti
Yale School of Art is holding a silent auction of small-scale work by students and faculty from January 25 to February 8 to benefit victims of the earthquake in Haiti.
The donated works will be on display at Green Hall Gallery, 1156 Chapel Street, from Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and during the weekend at times to be announced. For up-to-date information, visit www.opa.yale.edu/haiti. Bids will be taken throughout that time and until 8 p.m. on February 8, when the winning bidders will be announced.
In addition to the announcement of auction winners, the closing event of February 8, 6–8 p.m., will feature a brief talk about conditions in Haiti.
Bidders are advised to bring their checkbooks to the closing event. The School of Art will make a list of suggested charitable organizations available to bidders, and winners can make their checks payable to the organization they choose. The School of Art will then tally and send the checks directly to the organizations.
The School will also set up computers at the closing event, so that those attending can make direct online contributions to relief organizations without purchasing art.
