EMPTY WALLS is an all day event where artists from the community, staff, teachers and talented art students team up and create art the entire day at Niles North High School. At the end of the day, they graciously donate their artwork to be a part of the silent auction which helps the 2016 School Chest charity, Chicago Coalition for the Homeless, and Niles North Art Department scholarships. Please join us for this wonderful event!
Where: Niles North High School, Student Commons, 9800 N. Lawler Ave, Skokie, IL
When: Saturday, April 16, 2016
All types of artwork will be represented at the auction including: painting, photography, drawing, printmaking, watercolor, jewelry, fiber arts/clothing, and ceramics. There will also be donations from professional artists and educators in the community up for auction. Proceeds from Empty Walls go to Chicago for the Homeless. Chicago Coalition for the Homeless is the only non-profit in Illinois dedicated to advocating for public policies that curb and can ultimately end homelessness. The organization leads strategic campaigns, community outreach, and public policy initiatives that target the lack of affordable housing in metropolitan Chicago and across Illinois.
