City Pulse cover art auction supports art education

In the 3rd year benefitting the Arts Council, residents can now bid online for original art

Posted

According to a recent report by the National Dropout Prevention Center, arts education has been shown to improve students’ abilities to reflect, manage behavior and have tolerance for others’ perspectives. This auction is a continued effort to sustain the arts in the Lansing schools through the Arts Council of Greater Lansing’s Young Creatives Program.

Bidding is taking place on 32auctions.com/acglauction.com and ends at 5 p.m., April 15. The art up for auction includes work featured on the cover of City Pulse for the last three years as part of the paper’s Summer of Art project. The project has benefitted the Arts Council, which has raised money by conducting a silent auction for the last two years at its annual Holiday glitter event.

This year, City Pulse and the Arts Council have moved the auction online. It began Friday. All the pieces are by local creatives.

This year’s goal is to raise $5,000, with 30 percent going to the individual artists. The rest goes to the Arts Council’s Young Creatives Program, which brings creative opportunities to schools and individuals.
