Friday November 3, 2023 | 6:30 - 9:30 pm | Marwen, 833 N Orleans St

Art Fair Co-Chairs: Mikaya Daniels and Julie Hokin Watts

Marwen is thrilled to host the 17th annual Art Fair: an exhibition, art auction, and fundraiser. The fair features artworks from Marwen students, alumni, teaching artists, and staff. Join us for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres as you take in the boundless creativity of the Marwen community and bid on the artworks that inspire you the most.

For many of the young people enrolled in our studio courses, Art Fair is their first opportunity to exhibit and sell art. All proceeds directly support the artists and Marwen's no-cost programming. Art Fair is where all facets of Marwen come together to showcase what we believe in: the power of art and community to nurture phenomenal human beings.
