Save the Date: Heart of West Philadelphia

Saturday, May 12

Art Community University City & West Philly

Join us at the University of the Sciences for the Arts League’s annual spring gala honoring our recently deceased neighbor, the great artist Vaughn Stubbs. The night will feature an evening of artwork (including works from Vaughn’s estate) and art experiences in a live and silent auction, dinner, signature cocktails, and an open bar and dancing.

Share your creative side, by collecting works of some of Philadelphia’s most talented artists who will have works up for bid in our live and silent auctions. In honor of Vaughn’s art, we are asking local artists to create heart-shaped works. Check back often for news of these works and more information on our live auction items once it becomes available.

Purchase your tickets now for an unforgettable evening!
