The proceeds from a live art auction in December will be donated to St. Anthony’s Community Center in Dallas tomorrow, Wednesday, January 30. The local art collective and fundraisers, Art Conspiracy, raised $14,000 in Deep Ellum with live music and works from more than 120 artists. The money will help fund art and music programs at St. Anthony’s, which provides a variety of after-school and weekend activities for more than 800 children in South Dallas.
“While many art programs are being cut from school budgets, St. Anthony’s Community Center provides year-round, art-rich programs for children and youth,” says Comfort Brown, the director of St. Anthony’s Community Center.
Since 2005, Art Conspiracy has raised more than $34,000 for charities including St. Anthony’s, La Reunion, and The Children’s Health Fund.
