Outside the Box AiA Annual Fundraiser

Artists in Action would like to thank all those who have participated in our past auctions whether at the AiA booth during the Salem Art Fair or online in 2020 and 2021. We truly appreciate your support. All proceeds from this annual fundraiser directly benefit our organization to help our artist community continue to thrive. We hope the winning bidders enjoy possessing the artsy boxes as much as we enjoy making them.
