The 6×6 PROJECT is a fundraiser and online art auction/exhibition with all proceeds benefiting Raue Center’s educational programs, Mission Imagination and Sage Studio, which have been enriching the lives of over 20,000 kids a year in the local community since 2001. Our 2nd annual 6×6 PROJECT kicked off January 2, 2020. Artists of all ages and abilities were invited to participate by creating original works of art, in a variety of mediums, on 6×6” canvases. Our inaugural 6×6 PROJECT fundraising event in 2019 received over 170 pieces of art and raised over $10,000. This year, we plan on having approximately 250 canvases and our goal is $25,000.

Last year’s inaugural event in 2019 featured 170 works of art and raised over $10,000. This year, we plan on having approximately 250 canvases and our goal is $25,000. Due to the mandate by Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker to “shelter-in-place” and the extension through at least June 1st, Raue Center has decided to push back this fundraising event. Online bidding for the 6×6 PROJECT Art Auction will now begin on June 8 at 9am and go through June 27. Bidding will begin at $35 per canvas. More details about how to bid on the amazing art being donated this year will be coming soon.
