Artists: please donate to the Benefit Auction!

It’s been a huge year for Works, with the move to 365 South Market, a buildout with fantastic ‘barn raising’ volunteers, a wide range of exhibitions, and ongoing KidWorks and WordsDrawingMusic events. Works also hosted performances by Cardboard Box Theatre Project and the new WellRED reading series with Poetry Center San José. There is a lot more to do in lighting, signage, and programming, and we need your help to move forward.

Our most important fundraiser is the Benefit Auction—please download the Call and donate a piece if you can—it will make a huge difference.

Artists deliver art: July 21, 22, and 28, noon to 4pm each day
