We host various events throughout the community and could not do so without the generous support of our local businesses and individuals.
We are proud to present our signature events.
Inaugural Strokes of Genius A.R.T. Auction
On November 3, 2016, Freeman’s Auction House hosted Blossom Philadelphia of Philadelphia’s Inaugural Strokes of Genius A.R.T. Auction. It was a great night to showcase true artistic talent and raise funds for tomorrow’s A.R.T.ists. Thank you to our artists, guests, volunteers and sponsors.
Artistic Realization Technologies (A.R.T.) creates unique tools, technologies, and studio programming that empower individuals with serious physical and/or neurological challenges, to gain uncompromised control of creative processes, start to finish.
Using A.R.T., a person who cannot walk, talk, or use their hands can make exacting, sophisticated, consequential decisions that result in works of art that can stand on their own in the best art gallery. By having full creative autonomy for the first time, users not only find personal liberation, but allow us to see who they really are, to see the life trapped within.
