As you might have guessed, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Art Changes Lives indefinitely. While we were eagerly looking forward to celebrating with you and over 450 community members and CE artists on April 17th, we feel this is the best decision to ensure the safety and health of our artists, guests, volunteers and staff. We can’t wait to celebrate with you in the future. 

If you were planning on attending the event, there are still many ways you can support Creativity Explored.

  1. Can’t raise a paddle during the fund-a-need? Make an online donation from the comfort of your own home

  2. Won’t be able to ignite that bidding war during the live auction? Donate to Creativity Explored via Benevity and challenge your friends to do the same. Benevity will match each gift dollar for dollar up to $300,000.

  3. Don’t want to miss seeing some of the best artwork in town? Follow Creativity Explored on Instagram for your own private exhibition. Have some of your own artwork to share? Tag @creativityexplored and #CurateWithCE when posting your own CE collection.

  4. Too busy preparing to shelter at home to figure out what we mean by “creative cocktail attire”? Select Creativity Explored when shopping on Amazon Smile for your home needs and other purchases.
