Art Lives Here is the flagship fundraiser supporting Hirsch Wellness Healing Arts programs for cancer patients, cancer survivors, caregivers and medical providers. All proceeds go to creativity and wellness programs, so they can be provided for free.
The folk art auction moved to an online format in 2020, due to the pandemic. Web-based tendering has overtaken previous years of face-to-face tendering.
In addition to the nearly 200 works donated, Art Lives Here 2021 will be auctioning âOut of the Vaultâ works. Out of the Vault will feature artwork donated by artwork owners.
The main sponsor of 2021 Art Lives Here is Ralph Lauren. The event also enjoys the generous support of many corporate and individual donors. For more sponsorship information and a list of current sponsors visit: https://www.hirschwellnessnetwork.org/art-lives-here/#Sponsor
About The Art Lives Here fundraiser and the Hirsch Wellness Network
Art Lives Here has become a tradition of giving for many local and regional artists. Various works of arts and crafts are generously donated each year, ensuring that cancer patients, survivors and their caregivers can attend the Hirsch Wellness Healing Arts programs free of charge. Since March 2020, Hirsch programs have been offered via Zoom, where each month more than 25 workshops have been attended by more than 350 participants. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the Art Lives Here silent auction pay our instructors, provide quality art supplies, and support the operating expenses of the Hirsch staff.
Thirteen years ago, Hirsch Wellness Network was founded by Louise Grape to provide the emotional support needed by all those affected by cancer. Because of community involvement, we have! Since 2008, Hirsch has served over 13,000 participants in over 1,200 programs.
