UPwithART 2.0 is an online, reimagined version of the arty-party and silent art auction you have grown to know and love. Beginning on 24 May at 9 am and culminating on 30 May at 9 pm, we will all gather online, to celebrate culture, compassion and community through relief of homelessness and for the love of art! This is the 10th annual event, and the second year of Museum London and Unity Project’s partnership to support Unity Project’s Housing Stability Program and Museum London’s children’s programming.
While this year’s arty-party and silent art auction has been digitally adapted to online format, it still served up familiar UPwithART favourites: original works by local, renowned, emerging and Unity Project participant artists as well as contemporary and historical works donated by notable London-area collectors. This year’s festivities will include a week-long online art auction, an exclusive Registration Prize, an Art & Activism artist panel discussion, Money Now! donation bidding, live elements and much more!
Our deepest thanks to the sponsors, artists, collectors, committee and all who have rallied to defeat pandemic discombobulation and bring this all together. This milestone anniversary year will prove yet again that Londoners are intent on creating a better city through celebration of the arts and social justice.
