The Mills College Artist Network is holding its third annual online art auction to raise funds for an endowed scholarship.
I graduated from Mills College, so I know first hand why this is important. In a nutshell, Mills knows how to support women in education. It is a small school, so they know and work with each individual. Each student's goals, needs, and inner life are nurtured and cared for through support, challenge, and sanctuary. Additionally Mills funds education with scholarships and school-funded loans. Not only was I the recipient of scholarships, I also remember those loans saving me once or twice during my time there.
Students work on faith, believing that education is the right path despite the cost. I am making my third donation to the auction because I want to affirm for these students that indeed, education is the right choice. Additionally I believe in supporting an institution that cared for me so thoroughly and opened my mind to so many possibilities that were once invisible to me.
Please take a look at the artwork available and consider placing a bid. You might wind up with a great bargain, but you'll certainly help a future Mills College student.
Bidding Opens September 8th, 8am CST Closes October 8th, 11:59pm CST
