Silent Art Auction
Not only is the Evening of the Arts a cultural extravaganza for medical students and faculty to showcase their talents, it is also an opportunity for artists to display and/or auction theirwork(s). Funds raised are used to support the following clinics that provide free health services to the homeless and working poor of Indianapolis: Gennesaret Clinic, St. Thomas Clinic, Wheeler Mission, and IU Student Outreach Clinic.
The Evening of the Arts Silent Auction takes place during intermission. The auction will run for thirty minutes and guests are invited to bid on as many pieces as they wish. Most of the art work consists of photos and paintings. However, we have also had more unique items such as furniture, hand made clocks, pottery, glass works, clothing, and many other interesting items. Most of the art work is produced and donated by Indiana University medical students. Each item usually starts out at $10 to $20 dollars. All proceeds from the art auction go to supporting programs providing medical care to the homeless.
For those eager to see the items that will be included in year 2010 's auction, please visit our website again. As medical students submit items for the auction, digital picture of their art work will be posted on the website. We also invite you to come early to the show to view the art work on display in the lobby just outside the auditorium.
