Art for charity


Art for charity

Art for charity refers to the convergence between art and charitable giving. Artists may produce works specifically to be sold for charity or creators or owners of artistic works might donate all or part of the proceeds of sale to a good cause. Such sales are often conducted by auction. Alternatively, works may be exhibited (and possibly be available for sale) with ticket sales being donated. [cite web
