The Lottery for the Arts is a fundraising event that provides art collectors with an opportunity to acquire original works of fine art, while supporting a non-profit organization and community of artists. Each year Blue Line Arts accepts original art donations from artists or from collections, which are exhibited at the gallery prior to the auction. Throughout the evening of the Lottery event, Lottery tickets purchased by guests in advance are drawn at random. As each ticket is called out, the ticket holder chooses a piece of art from the gallery walls. At the end of the evening, each ticket holder goes home with a work of art valued from $200 up. There will be a live auction of the first 6 picks.
All works are considered donations to Blue Line Arts.
Lottery for the Arts is our organization’s biggest annual fundraiser and is used to fund our year-round art education programs. Your artwork donation helps provide the gift of creative learning to the next generation at our non-profit arts center.
