Visit UPwithART.ca to view over 50 framed works up for auction in support of Unity Project for Relief of Homelessness and Museum London’s children’s programming.

In its 11th year, this fundraising partnership will celebrate culture, compassion, and community from Sunday, April 18 to Saturday, April 24. Works donated by established and emerging artists and from notable London area collectors (paintings, photographs, prints, and sculpture) will be in an online silent auction with prices geared to both new and seasoned collectors. Last year, UPwithART raised almost $150K which directly funded Unity Project’s emergency shelter and supportive housing for adults and youth of all genders, and Museum London’s children’s art programming.
