LCAD is launching a Fine Arts Virtual Exhibition in late August. Entitled “Artists Unite: A Virtual Exhibition and Fundraiser to Honor Black Lives Matter,” the exhibition features donated work created by students, alumni, faculty, staff and trustees. Proceeds from sales of the artwork will go directly to LCAD’s Equity + Inclusion Scholarship, Black Art Futures Fund (BAFF) and Black Trans Femmes in the Arts (BTFA).

NEXT STEPS: The exhibition runs August 31st through October 30th, 2020.

UPDATE: The successful virtual exhibition realized proceeds from sale of the artwork totaling nearly $4,000. The funds are being split between the LCAD Equity + Inclusion Scholarship and the Black Art Futures Fund (BAFF). LCAD’s Equity + Inclusion Scholarship will be awarded to Black students.
