AUCTION 2009 POP NOIR

POP NOIR, Southern Exposures Annual Fundraiser + Art Auction

June 6, 2009

We are happy to announce the success of POP NOIR, Southern Exposure's Annual Fundraiser and Art Auction! On June 6, 2009, Southern Exposure hosted more than 500 amazing supporters of the arts at the event.

Thanks to the supporters and sponsors and the more than 150 generous artists who donated to the auction. Their involvement helped us raise the critical funds that support our Exhibition, Artists in Education, and Artists Resource programs and our ability to to provide an accessible space to artists, youth, and the community. We truly could not have done it without everyone's support and enthusiasm!
