Another successful Project 31!

 

Thursday, March 29, 2018

When auctioneer Stephen Ranger’s gavel fell for the final time, a record 48 lots had been snapped up at OCAD U’s Project 31 fundraising auction. Once again, the event was a huge success, raising more than $240,000 (gross) for initiatives that support the student experience. Since 2010, the event has raised more than $800,000 (net).

The funds finance scholarships and awards for students in a wide range of programs, including Criticism & Curatorial Practice, Drawing & Painting, Illustration and Indigenous Visual Culture. In addition, the event funds bursaries for students in financial need, equipment and materials for specific programs and opportunities for off-campus studies, among other areas.

Many thanks to the participating artists who generously donated their work to benefit of OCAD U students:

Barbara Astman; Jason Baerg; Monica Bodirsky; Kotama Bouabane; Claire Brunet; Ian Carr-Harris; John Deal; Judith Doyle; Theresa Duong; Scott Everingham; Pat Fairhead; Mitchell Fenton; T.M. Glass; Melissa General; Kate Hartman; Catherine Heard; Jody Hewgill; April Hickox; Mark Jaroszewicz; Anda Kubis; Colette Laliberté; JJ Lee; Ginette Legaré; Bogdan Luca; Greg Mably; Lindsay MacDonald; Hugh Martin; Linda Martinello; Wrik Mead; Henrjeta Mece; Immony Men; Sarah Nind; James Olley; Luke Painter; Diane Pugen; Lauchie Reid; Stuart Reid; John Scott; Rosalie Sharp; Meera Margaret Singh; Peter Sramek; Jennie Suddick; Derek Sullivan; Amy Swartz; Gary Taxali; Natalie Waldburger; George A. Walker; Michèle White; Tek Yang.
