A few years ago, my daughter and I went to this great event, Artopia in Tallahassee, FL benefitting Big Bend Cares – we walked out with enough art to furnish her home.. and every time I see it, it brings back great memories of that night. A huge masterpiece, a local artist’s FIRST art piece, taking over a year hangs in her living room now, the perfect piece for a huge empty wall. I posted about it after the event, made a video of some of the art pieces in an earlier Blog Post here at TalkTallahassee.com. (http://blog.homesalesoftallahassee.com/2010/06/27/365-things-to-do-in-tallahassee-day-14-big-bend-cares-artopia-event/) Three other works line her stairway and fill her bedroom. I can’t even tell you the values that we felt we walked away with from this event. I can tell you this, I felt so badly  I went back to Big Bend Cares the next week and made an additional donation! If you are looking for some beautiful, original art works. Artopia is the place to be – all for a great cause too!

What is Artopia?

Over the past fifteen years, Artopia has become Big Bend Cares’ largest fundraiser and one of the most highly anticipated art events. Featuring local and world-renowned artists that donate their work and attendees bid on the art through silent and live auctions. Proceeds provide education and comprehensive support for people infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS.

Calling All Artists!

We will start accepting artwork donations for the 15th Annual Artopia charity art auction in April. This is a juried art event. A jury of art professionals will select the best-in-show pieces – with the top three winning cash prizes of $500, $300 and $100. Call Michelle Hayse at (850) 656-2437 or email mhayse@bigbendcares.org for questions.
