This thrilling and vital fundraising event is held annually in early spring. More than 200 artists create 8" x 8" works of art for the art[squared] exhibition & sale, which will be available for $100 each. All artists will remain anonymous until the squares are purchased - once a piece is sold, the artist's name will be revealed. Proceeds from art[squared] support Children's Fine Art Classes (CFAC).
How art[squared] works...
More than 200 paintings line the walls of the LVA Gallery. Each piece is priced at $100 and signed on the back, leaving the front anonymous. The beauty of an anonymous exhibition is viewers will be able to respond to the artwork on its merits alone, without prejudice or preference.
The exhibition is unseen by the public until the doors open. Guests have 30 minutes to browse the artwork and seek out their favorites. All works will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. As each piece is sold, the buyer learns the identity of the artist, and a placard with the selling artist's name will replace the artwork on the wall.
All proceeds benefit CFAC, which educates more than 1,000 artistically talented and visually driven children annually in the Greater Louisville area. This provides students with scholarships and helps offset instructor and supply costs in all 12 participating Kentuckiana counties.
We look forward to seeing you at art[squared] 2018!
