Evergreen Celebrates Northwest Art and Culture at the Third Annual Art of Living Fundraiser

October 14, 2011

The auction event -- with the benefactor sponsor, Washington State Employees Credit Union, and other sponsors including Olympia Federal Savings, Art House Design, Heritage Bank, Batdorf & Bronson Coffee Roasters, and The Evergreen State College Foundation --features gourmet delicacies, music, and the opportunity to bid on original art and exciting experiences from the Northwest and across the nation.

Silent and Live Auctions will include curated, original artwork in a variety of media from Tom Anderson, Greg Colfax, Joe Feddersen, Tina Hoggatt, Nikki McClure, Paul McKee and many other established artists.

The event will also include the opportunity for participants to bid on art experiences like an in-home concert, dining experiences, boat tours, and more.

The Art of Living in 2010 was a resounding success, raising more than $63,000 for direct student scholarship support.

Throughout the current 2011-12 academic year, Evergreen is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its first graduating class and wishes to honor and thank the many community members, faculty, students, staff and alumni that have made us a relevant force for good through the decades.
