Call for Art: A Heart Needs a Home

2015 Art Fundraiser for the Somerville Homeless Coalition

November 28, 2015 Commitment Date extended

Washington Street is pleased to host its second fundraiser for the Somerville Homeless Coalition — "A Heart Needs a Home".

Please find the artist commitment form here for our second fundraiser for the Somerville Homeless Coalition. Our first fundraiser, held in 2010, was a sweet success, and we hope to match that this year! This is a silent auction, but friendly "bidding competitions" are encouraged, so we encourage all artists donating work to be onhand to ease negotiations!

Medium: All mediums are welcome. Max size for 2D is 48" on the long side. Musicians: we'd love your donations! If you can think of a way to donate your work in an auctionable manner, please do! Recordings, lessons, a live performance for a lucky bidder—let us know! We're open to your ideas. All 2D and 3D art must be provided ready to be installed. WSA has several pedestals for small– to medium-sized sculpture. Please see the form for specifications.

100% of art sales will be donated to the Somerville Homeless Coalition. Official tax forms will be available for those artists wishing to make their donation tax-deductible.

Submission Process: Commitment date: November 15th. Please email .jpg images of your art, and any questions about the auction, to Gretchen Graham, at Although not formally juried, we are reviewing work prior to accepting it in-person on 12/1. Download the application here.
