2023 Art Auction
This year’s Mission Fed ArtWalk will feature a Charity Art Auction benefiting ArtReach, a nonprofit organization aimed at increasing equity in visual arts education in K-12 schools throughout San Diego County by delivering free workshops to schools with no other resources for art. Electra Bicycle Company, a San Diego-based company and the leading lifestyle bicycle brand in the U.S., has generously donated a collection of cruiser bikes and bike accessories to be designed by local artists. The bidding takes place online, and the bikes will be displayed at Piazza della Famiglia during Mission Fed ArtWalk.
Artist shown is Theresa Vandenberg Donche
Bidding will open on April 1. Check the ArtReach website.
ArtReach, founded in 2007, is ArtWalk’s nonprofit partner. The organization takes professional artists into schools County-wide, focusing on Title One schools that have no other resources for art. The ArtReach mural program has taken this art form to the next level working collaboratively with students at many schools throughout the area. ArtReach believes that all students, regardless of zipcode, need art and creativity to thrive. The organization provides youth the tools, instruction and confidence to connect with the artist within all of us.
