Summer of Love (For Your Walls)

Imagine: you can get urgently needed arts education to the students of Oakland, and support the artists and arts organizations hit hardest by the shutdown. All you need is love—for your walls!

100% of your purchase will fund arts education grants for programs serving Oakland public school students!

Our Summer of Love collection includes bold acrylics, mixed media compositions, soft pastel expressions, and everything in-between. Big or small, bright or muted, there's a piece for everyone here.

None of this would be possible without the generosity of the artists who have donated their collectible works. Our heartfelt thanks to: Kelly Autumn, Marsha Balian, Sherrod Blankner, Kristen Jensen, Sally Kiehn , Sally Landis, Kathy Liang, Helen Ann Licht, John Paul Marcelo, Githinji Mbire, William McDaniels, Mati Rose McDonough, Mel O., Rita Paleja, Dana Petersen, Damon Powell, Sita Rupe, Robert Simons, Jan Stamos, and Simon Tran.

Bidding closes at 8pm on September 14, so bid early, bid often, and let's get this love train moving!


About Arts for Oakland Kids

Arts for Oakland Kids is a 501(c)(3) fund with a mission to advance arts justice by ensuring that all students in under-resourced Oakland public schools receive a comprehensive arts education in order to improve learning and promote achievement. We envision a world in which the power of arts education is fully recognized, and every public school student – regardless of race, background, or wealth – is given equitable access to the advantages of a comprehensive arts education, enabling them to reach their intellectual, social, and emotional potential. Since 1996, we have reached 25,000 kids in 95 public schools and awarded $815,000+ to artists/teachers for 192 arts programs.
