The Virtual Gala & Fine Art Auction

In response to increasing concerns about the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Arts for ACT 2020 Gala was held virtually. The event, hosted on the website took place on November 6. The virtual pre-show started at 6:30 p.m. with the live auction at 7 p.m. and ended with a post-show at 9:00 p.m. In addition to going virtual, this year’s theme was Back to the Future.

I made a special painting of Einstein to donate to the cause! Thank you to everyone who participated on the night of the auction. It was a lot of fun and congratulations to the winning bidder for Einstein! 100% of the proceeds went to support ACT!
