MISSA MAGIC Fundraising Auction

For the first time in 35 years MISSA participants were not able to gather to share in the energy, excitement and creative inspiration, we like to call MISSA MAGIC.

We invite you to participate in our online fundraiser and celebrate the MISSA community by purchasing a generously donated original piece of art. MISSA MAGIC will be 10-day on-line auction from November 19 to November 29, 2020. All pieces are made by our diverse community of MISSA artists including some of our very talented national and international MISSA instructors.

The range of our donors has been diverse to not only include instructors but also students, techs, Mentored Residency participants, past and present board members, patrons, past and present Executive Directors, a founding member and the community at large. We are very grateful to the wide range of talent and diversity of art, donated to support this cause.

"I feel pretty strongly connected to the community of MISSA and am happy to help pull through these difficult times. I look forward to the time in the future where we can all gather together again in the big energized creative jam session that MISSA feels like to me. " P. Beaton - MISSA Instructor

Every dollar raised will go to support MISSA in its mission to continue to bring arts education to the community, locally, nationally and internationally. With your help, we can keep the MISSA MAGIC alive!
