The smART: Auction + Benefit helps the SoLit Alliance
This Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m., a stylishly curated art auction of original work by a variety of regional artists is being held at The Venue Chattanooga on Cummings Hwy.
The proceeds from the evening benefit Southern Lit Alliance’s high-impact community outreach programs such as the Reading Groups at Bradley County Jail, Revitalibrary at Moccasin Bend Mental Health Institute, and Writers in Classrooms at Hamilton County schools.
The Southern Lit Alliance is a longstanding Chattanooga literary arts organization established in the 1950’s by a Ford Foundation grant. Along with twelve other organizations founded at the same, it is the only one remaining at the grand old age of 63.
Southern Lit Alliance believes in the transcendent power of literature to inspire, connect, and uplift. They connect individuals and communities through extensive programs and stewardship in the literary arts.
Included at the auction will be delicious catering by SwissAm, funky music sourced by SoundCorps, and libations by Riverside Wine & Spirits. Tickets are $50 for regular admission or $75 for VIP. The VIP includes early entry and bidding at 6 p.m. as well as access to an exclusive balcony liquor bar and music.
