2018 Charity Boxes
For the past eleven years Lattimer Gallery has organized an event to help support the Urban Native Youth Association, a Vancouver organization which has been providing 21 prevention-focused programs and services to Native youth since 1988. UNYA’s work includes advocacy, community development, and providing youth with meaningful opportunities to provide input into their programs and services.
All of the work in the creation of these small cedar boxes is donated: the boxes are steam-bent and constructed by Métis/Cree artist James Michels; the promotion and collected funds is donated by Lattimer Gallery; and all the artwork is donated by the artists. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Urban Native Youth Association.
This year's auction will be held from November 17th - December 1st. The prices displayed represent current bids. Bids increase by increments of $100. You can place a bid by emailing, calling, or dropping by in person. Bidding ends on December 1st at 8pm.
Artist reception December 1st from 5pm - 8pm at our 1590 West 2nd Avenue location.
