VABC Raucous Auction: Support a Book Artist or Lecturer (Angel Gift)

Angel Gifts are new to this year’s VABC Raucous Auction and provide a way of supporting specific needs that currently exist at the Virginia Arts of the Book Center. By bidding on this Angel Gift, you will be directly supporting VABC programs, allowing the VABC to bring book artists and lecturers to Charlottesville for community programs. In addition to making a substantive and meaningful contribution to the VABC, you’ll also receive a broadside print featuring poetry by Walt Whitman and an original portrait of Whitman comprised of the letters in his name.

Past visiting book artists and lecturers include David Swhitman-broadside-printhields, an associate professor of design at VCU, and Johanna Drucker, an internationally renowned book artist. 

Visit VABC’s online auction site to bid on this Angel Gifts and make plans to attend the Raucous Auction on November 18th to ensure you have the winning bid. All bidding extends through to the end of the event!
