WORCESTER – Worcester art students from several local art organizations will be creating one-of-a-kind snowflakes to auction off to raise money for nonprofits Main IDEA and The Sprinkler Factory Art Gallery.The silent auction — held by ArtReach and The Snowflake Project — will feature artwork from students from ArtReach, Project Art, CENTRO and contributions by talented local artists.
The event will take place from 4 PM to 7 PM at The Sprinkler Factory on Jan. 20. Snowflakes are available to view online now until the event at ArtReach’s website and their Facebook page.
The event is free and open to the public with a $10 suggested donation at the door.
Darcy Schwartz, the owner of ArtReach and organizer of The Snowflake Project, said, “The idea of a snowflake project is very simple. When a small business can help a non-profit organization with the same ideals, the ‘snowflakes’ are the goodwill – and funds – that fall and help support a greater good. Like one snowflake, no gift is to small that it won’t impact the people around you.”
