It's called Win Win because everyone has a chance to take home fantastic art! 

NIAD Art Center artists have made an amazing batch of works (paintings, photographs, sculptures, fibers and drawings) in a standard 6 x 6" format. The pieces are ready to hang on your wall or to be displayed prominently on a shelf. When you purchase a ticket, you will receive one 6x6" work of art randomly selected for you (shipped). Money raised by this benefit goes to the NIAD Art Center general operating fund (which means we get to keep the lights on onsite and in our virtual studio, and paint in everyone's pots for another day).

A selection of 6x6 artworks created by NIAD artists during shelter in place.

Also included in the event is a silent auction featuring works from more than 20 NIAD artists, and a live auction featuring works from other contemporary artists from the Bay Area and beyond who support NIAD. (Yes, you can attend the Zoom event and bid without buying a ticket; you just won't get a 6x6 canvas.) 

You can bid on this Artist Multiples Tote in the Live Auction!

Raven Harper, NIAD Artist, creating a ceramic face vase.

"Art is about remembering for me. It comes to my mind that we should remember our ancestors. It's about the things you have that you can be thankful for. I remember Dr. King and Rosa Parks and the old ways and the way they showed us.

There is power in learning history. Celebrating Black hair is important to me and exploring it in my clay sculptures of Black people. Black cultural icons are important to my practice also, especially Aretha Franklin. Aretha inspired a lot of people and showed herself in a good way." - Raven Harper, NIAD Artist
