Premiere PAWS art auction scheduled for June 27
So it's a good thing that two Cleveland Institute of Art students -- Melinda Laszczynski and JenMarie Zeleznak -- are teaming up for Art Helping Animals, an art auction from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday, June 27, at the Museum of Contemporary Art, 8501 Carnegie Ave., Cleveland.
All proceeds from the evening’s event will support the Public Animal Welfare Society of Ohio, a non-profit organization considered to be one of Ohio’s most reputable long-standing cat and dog humane rescue groups.
The event will feature an auction of work donated by students and faculty, as well as other prominent local artists including Derek Hess, Amy Casey, Thomas Frontini, Eric Neff, Randall Tiedeman and Dana Depew; a silent auction; a donation wine/beer bar and food. Students Drew Robertson and Ben Malkevitch will also play live music.
Tickets are available for $20 on the PAWS website. Parking is free.
