Works of Heart Valentine Auction

This year's Works of Heart valentine auction at the Memphis College of Art on February 8, 2014 was the best bash in town! At Works of Heart you can bid on incredible works of art created by leading regional artists—and help abused kids find healing as well. Emcee Kym Clark fueled the excitement as art-lovers partied with a purpose.

Here's how it works:

The Art
Over 100 major area artists create gallery-quality work specifically for Works of Heart. You’ll love the exhilaration of bidding on pieces by artists like John McIntire, Maritza Davila, George Hunt, and Dolph Smith. Follow us on  Facebook or Twitter (follow us @MemphisCAC and use our hashtag #worksofheart), you’ll get pictures and info about artists and their artwork in the weeks leading up to the event.

The Process
The auction is divided into 3 sections. Each section has a different closing time for bidding, each 30 minutes apart. Bidding in the Whitehorn, Tankersley & Davis section of artwork closes at 8:45. The Morris & Associates section closes at 9:15. And the final section, the Roadshow BMW/MINI  section, closes at 9:45.

You help make it happen!
Works of Heart is a success because of the generous support of our guests, our committed volunteers, and our gracious supporters--not to mention the artists whose time and creativity result in work that ranges from beautiful to thought-provoking. Our committee, under the leadership of Murray Riss and Sheryl Bowen, contribute the details that make the event unique. Works of Heart is just another example of ways people like you pull together to give back and help victims become children again.
