Students participating are approved for a study abroad program with the Office of International Study at Marymount College, Palos Verdes and are raising funds for their international study expenses. The Art Gallery Fundraiser will raise funds by showcasing either art created by the students, or art that these students sourced, and secured for the exhibition via donation from another artist, gallery, or individual. The artwork will be sold and a portion of the net proceeds will go directly to the student to support their study abroad expenses (travel, books, food, and any other living expenses) while abroad.
The goal of this project is to promote international education in both the school and surrounding communities, while raising funds for students’ expenses on their trips abroad. This Art Gallery Fundraiser will also aim to leave a legacy that will promote international education at Marymount College for years to come, through an “International Study Club”, and resources and relationships established within the communities of San Pedro, Palos Verdes and the rest of the Southbay.
The Art Gallery Fundraiser will consist of a two (2) month exhibition, and three (3) gallery events. Two of these events will be on the “First Thursday San Pedro Art Walks” scheduled for Thursday March, 1st, and Thursday, April 5th, and the third event will be on Saturday, April 28th consisting of a live art auction event where all of the original works by the artists will be sold.
