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.

The event came together thanks to the dedicated staff and faculty who made up the Project 31 Committee, Katherine Needham, Senior Manager of Advancement Events, and her team of volunteers.
