Art for Advocacy celebrates the healing power of art and all proceeds benefit Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center. Now in its 14th year,theauction is comprised of around 80 works of art and includes a live and silent auction.
Inspired by small scale art works auctions and fundraisers like the 5×7 Show and Postcards of Positivity, this year ART will feature a collection of approximately 50 miniature art works from renowned local, national and international artists that will be sold at the event on September 25th for $250 a piece.
The price of each miniature work corresponds to the cost of one forensic interview at DCAC, the first step in the investigative process for a criminal child abuse case. During a forensic interview each child victim has the opportunity to Be BOLD. Be BRIGHT. Be BRAVE. and tell their story in a safe, child-centered environment to a specially trained interviewer.
Like so many nonprofit organizations, DCAC has faced great COVID-related fundraising challenges, including the cancellation and rescheduling of signature events that raise critical support for the agency’s mission. Our hope is that the Art Minis feature at Art for Advocacy 2021 will allow more individuals to bring home a fabulous work of art and while helping support the agency’s mission and close the $300,000 deficit faced by the agency due to COVID-19.
