"Creating A Better Tomorrow
2020 Online Art Virtual Art Auction & Exhibit
Bid ONLINE August 26–28
In an era of pandemic, civil unrest and overall uncertainty, Art is the universal medium that UNITEs communities. While social distancing is in effect, United Way of the Greater Dayton Area is seeking local Creatives who are answering the call to foster community with a virtual visual arts event called, "Creating" a Better Tomorrow.
The event will celebrate the talent of locally acclaimed African American artists, as well as emerging young African American artists. Participating artists will open their social media platforms to display their work and create dialogue about art and current events affecting our community. Lastly, artists will explain why they have created their piece to help raise awareness and donations for United Way of the Greater Dayton Area.
Donated work will go on virtual display with viewers having the opportunity to bid on the artwork with auction proceeds benefitting UWGDA’s LIVE UNITED Fund. Resources from this fund support services, programs and strategies in the areas of education, financial stability and health that address immediate needs and provide solutions for a better future.
