Stirring Up Hope for DVCC an Art Auction

This art Auction will raise funds and hope for DVCC’s New Beginnings Campus programs. We have had a number of artists design and repurpose wooden spoons. A wooden spoon is a simple item most of us have encountered and have a memory of. However, not all of us have the same memories, some are positive and some are not. You may have cooked with a parent and have great memories of stirring spaghetti sauce with that loved one, or you may have something sad or scary associated with it. The artists use the spoon as it is, and add to it or change it, and it develops a new identity much like the people who come to the DVCC New Beginnings Campus. We also have many pieces of original art that will be auctioned off to benefit the Domestic Violence Crisis Center.
