The Graduate Art Student Association of Radford University will host a silent art auction to raise funds for the Mill Mountain Zoo’s conservation efforts. The auction will be held at the zoo on Saturday, April 30, 2022, 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
The auction is open to the public.
The auctioned artwork consists of original paintings and ceramics inspired by the Mill Mountain Zoo animals and attractions like the Red Wolf, turtles, and the Zoo Choo Train.
“Our graduate students are working professionals who want to donate their talents to the community in the form of art,” said Alexandra Leonetti, the president of Radford University’s Graduate Art Student Association. “It’s important to us that we support a local non-profit organization like the Mill Mountain Zoo that promotes wildlife preservation through education and conservation.”
All auctioned artworks will be available for viewing one week prior to the event on the Graduate Art Student Association Facebook page [facebook.com/gasa.radford]. In-person and online bidding will be available the day of the auction.
The Graduate Art Student Association at Radford University provides students working towards a master of fine arts degree with opportunities for professional development in art through exhibitions, seminars, community involvement, and other educational programs.
