Please join us on SATURDAY, MAY 6, 6:00 PM – 11:00 PM for the arty-party at Museum London. Not able to make it? You can place your bids online for the 60 artworks from THURSDAY, APRIL 27 AT 7:00 PM until SATURDAY, MAY 6 AT 9:00 PM. Please register and view the art at UPwithART.ca to support those who need the most help during this very difficult time.

Gathie Falk, Candle, acrylic on canvas, 2018, 18 x 24 in.

As the housing and homelessness crisis deepens and grows, and Museum London fights to keep art and history free for everyone, it is critical that we stand together and celebrate culture, compassion, and our community. Up for bid are 60 works of art by local, established, emerging, and Unity Project participant artists, ranging in value from $250 – $5,000, all framed and wall-ready. View all the art HERE.

This year, UPwithART is honoured to have Jason McLean (New York / London, ON) create a t-shirt featuring his work Seeing Double, which is also in the silent auction. We’ve partnered with Indigenous owned and operated screenprinters Rezonance Printing to bring you this limited edition t-shirt printed on 100% ringspun cotton in a sweatshop-free environment. Buy your t-shirt HERE.

Angie Quick, economy: i want you, oil on canvas, 2021, 15 x 11 in.
