5th Annual Art Show ~ World Pediatric Project
Mark your calendars for the weekend of February 24-25, 2018 Artful Healing! Our 5th annual fine art show benefitting the Richmond-based World Pediatric Project is presented by the Bon Air Artists Association (BAAA) and features Richmond-area premier and emerging artists. Artful Healing is held at the University of Richmondís Jepson Alumni Center for one weekend a year. The non-profit World Pediatric Project links pediatric surgical, diagnostic and preventative resources to heal critically-ill children in developing countries in the Caribbean and Central America and is well-known for arranging the 2011 surgical separation of the conjoined twins from the Dominican Republic here at MCV.
On February 24th & 25th, Richmonderís will be able to purchase fine original art from over 70 regional artists. Thirty five per cent ( 30 to WPP,5 to cover sales cost) of the proceeds from art sold during these two days will be donated to WPP.In addition, the proceeds from a raffle of several donated artworks will go to the World Pediatric Project and a portion of the funds raised to produce the exhibit will be donated to the WPP as well. The goal of the BAAA is to raise more than $20,000 this year. A total of more than $140,000.00 of art was sold during the last four years with a total of over $70,000.00 donated to benefit World Pediatric Projectís mission.
