The Education Fund’s For the Love of Art Annual Charity Auction & 公立立博中文版我们的时事通讯校友成就颁奖典礼 provides much-needed resources and recognition for children in the visual arts in Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS).  这个非常成功的年度活动,将在 May 13, 2024, showcases the essential role of visual arts in stimulating creativity and academic success for all children in our community. It also features artwork created by some of Miami’s most talented students and teachers – a huge draw for attendees, 其中不乏著名的艺术收藏家.

拍卖是立博中文版全区资源计划的一部分 海洋银行教材中心,海洋银行为主办单位.  Each year since 1998, 在这场备受瞩目的无声艺术拍卖会上,约有200件艺术品和奢侈品被售出, which attracts 700+ art collectors and patrons from the community to raise money for arts education and for the resource center.

The Annual Charity Art Auction is a much-needed source of support for the arts in our public schools, especially during a time of deep budget cuts in public education due to a decline in property values and state tax revenues. The money raised from the auction supports The Education Fund's 海洋银行教材中心, and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of each piece of art go to the art teachers to purchase art supplies for their classrooms that would not otherwise be provided. Mr. Peter DeMercado, a 20+ year art teacher remarked, “如果不是年复一年的这个项目, 我就没有钱给我的学生提供创作艺术的材料.到目前为止,儿童和教师的艺术品已经筹集了11美元.300多万美元用于迈阿密戴德县公立立博中文版我们的时事通讯系统的艺术项目.
