Donate your works or the works of other artists that you own

We’ll find them good homes as we raise money to support our healing arts community in our Art Lives Here Silent Auction.

Artists have supported our work with cancer survivors for over a decade by donating their art to our auction. Additionally, we also accept some art donations by owners from their personal collections (we call this “Out of the Vault”). We would love to have you join our efforts.

Submission deadline: Aug. 10-14, 2022
Bidding in our Art Lives Here Silent Auction: Sept. 19—Oct. 1, 2022

Louise, Andrena and Lynn Request Your Art Donations...

Hirsch Healing Arts programs are a lifeline of hope and healing for all who are touched by cancer. Each week Hirsch collaborates with fine artists and wellness practitioners to bring in-person and online creative group activities that enhance wellness of body, mind, and soul.

Your Gift of Art allows Hirsch to continue providing our Healing Arts programming at no cost to cancer patients in treatment, survivors, caregivers, and medical staff. Each month more than 300 class participants attend over 35 self-expressive arts and wellness experiences. Your generous contribution ensures our programs remain a welcoming, accessible, and valued resource for individuals and their families facing the challenges of cancer.

Now more than ever, Hirsch needs your support to expand our program capacity to safely resume in-person group activities at the Hirsch Center. Online programming will continue so we can meet the needs of individuals who are unable to join in-person due to treatment side effects, mobility, or travel constraints. We also are preparing for a growing number of newly diagnosed patients, whose screenings were delayed due to COVID-19.

This year we will be offering new ways to promote our donating artists to the community including links to your website on our Silent Art Auction website, interviews broadcast on social media and our website and a week-long opportunity for you to meet Hirsch supporters and art collectors at our gallery show during the auction.

Last year’s ART LIVES HERE event raised $70,000 in direct financial support for Hirsch Healing Arts programs. We are asking you to become a 2022 Donating Artist and help us reach our goal of $90,000.

Art Donations Drop off Days: Wednesday, August 10 – Sunday, August 14

Thank you for considering our request!

With gratitude,
