Each year this event brings contemporary artists and collectors together to support Locust Projects. The Smash & Grab Fundraiser is one of Locust Projects’ largest sources of revenue for the year. The proceeds provide essential funding for exhibitions and programming.
There is no other fundraiser quite like this one. The 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, connect with Miami’s art community, and support Locust Projects.
