5×5 Art Auction
August 23, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The 5×5 Art Auction will feature 5 inch by 5 inch (or 5x5x5) donated pieces by local artists and the community created on wood blocks provided by Work At 26. The auction will start at $15/piece and will increase in $5 increments. Funds raised from the event will benefit Broomfield FISH. Food, drinks, and musical entertainment will be available.
Please join us for a fun evening raising money for a great cause!
WHAT IS A 5X5?
A 5×5 is a 5 inch by 5 inch block of wood that we invite artists and the community to create a lovely piece of artwork on. 3D pieces are accepted as well within a 5x5x5 inch size. Wood blocks are provided by Work At 26 and can be picked up at their location.
The art blocks are submitted to the drop-off location at Work At 26 at 26 Garden Center, Suite 4 in Broomfield Monday – Friday 8am – 5pm (extended drop-off times Thursdays 8:30am – 6pm), and will be out for display and bidding August 23rd 5:30pm – 8:30pm at the 5×5 Art Auction event. Proceeds from the silent auction will benefit Broomfield FISH Food Bank.
HOW DO I DONATE A 5X5?
You can pick up blocks starting July 1st at Work At 26 in 26 Garden Center, Suite 4, Broomfield, and the drop-off location for submissions are in the same location. You can also join us July 2nd for a Create a 5×5 event where we’ll have some available: https://www.workat26.com/events-1/create-a-5×5.
WHAT CAN I MAKE ON MY 5X5?
Anything, thought we kindly ask you to refrain from pieces involving nudity, gore, or profanity for this event. You can paint, draw, make a collage, use fabric pieces, or even create a 3-dimensional piece that is 5x5x5 inches to donate to the auction!
CAN I MAKE MORE THAN ONE 5X5 TO DONATE FOR THE EVENT?
Absolutely! We just ask that you only take the number of blocks of wood that you will definitely use for your pieces, as we have a limited donated supply.
CAN I MAKE A PIECE WITHOUT THE PROVIDED BLOCK OF WOOD?
Unfortunately, we need you to use the provided blocks as the starting base. Please pick up your block(s) at Work At 26 in 26 Garden Center, Suite 4 Broomfield. With 3D pieces, we request that you still grab a block and submit it with your work. It does not have to be attached.
WHAT IF I DON’T FEEL LIKE I CAN MAKE A PIECE TO DONATE?
Please feel free to join us for a Create a 5×5 class hosted by Chromatix if you are not comfortable creating something on your own, but still would like to contribute! Our next class event will be July 2nd. https://www.workat26.com/events-1/create-a-5×5
WILL THERE BE MORE CREATE A 5X5 CLASSES?
Possibly! It depends on the level of interest we receive from the community. Since it is donated time we want to be respectful of that. If you are interested in attending another Create a 5×5 class please let us know!
WHEN IS THE 5X5 ART AUCTION?
The 5×5 Art Auction will be Friday August 23rd from 5:30pm – 8:30pm at Work At 26, at 26 Garden Center in Broomfield.
