The Lawrence Arts Center’s annual Benefit Art Auction is coming up on April 8, and a silent auction has started. This year’s show features works of art donated by more than 150 local artists.
For more than 40 years, this auction has been a critical fundraiser that helps keep the arts center’s exhibits free and open to the public.
In this episode of Lawrence Times TV, we’re asking some of this year’s artists to share one word that describes their donated piece.
