There is no other fundraiser quite like this one. The lively event revolves around a raffle, for which over one hundred local, national and international artists have donated artwork — enough so that each raffle ticket is guaranteed to win an artwork. Tickets are drawn at random during the party, with the winner getting their choice of artwork (i.e, first called gets first pick, and so on). The result is a fun way to place artwork into collections, build visibility for artists, connect with Miami’s art community, and support Locust Projects.

Join Locust Projects and ArtCenter/South Florida for a conversation with Heidi Zuckerman, Nancy and Bob Magoon CEO and director, Aspen Art Museum.
During her tenure with the museum, Zuckerman has boosted its stature from local art gallery to internationally-recognized institution. She successfully spearheaded a capital campaign to fund the museum’s new Shigeru Ban–designed building, raised more than $120 million and increased its endowment by more than 300 percent. To date at the museum, she has curated 100+ exhibitions, including traveling exhibitions to 15 venues across North America. She established the Aspen Art Press, which has produced exhibition catalogues distributed nationally and internationally. Previously, Zuckerman served as chair of the art curatorial department at the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive.
Parking is available at the cultural center, but limited. We encourage you to use a ride share service.
