“Hearts for the Arts” is an annual online art auction benefiting arts education. Hosted by The Springfield Regional Arts Council, this auction is in its 11th year, and features work of all media by local and regional artists.

Artists interested in donating work to Hearts for the Arts are encouraged to contact Rachel Johnson at 417-862-2787. Works of art should be dropped off at The Creamery Arts Center, January 7 & 8, 2019, 9am-5pm. Works can be of any size or medium, but they must be wired and ready-to-hang. Works do not have to reflect the event’s theme, but are encouraged to do so. Participating artists receive multiple recognition opportunities, including display of their donated work through the month of January and February. This is the *only* time the SRAC asks an artist to donate their work.

The Hearts for the Arts auction begins online on Friday, January 11th, and runs through Friday, February 1st. Patrons can bid online at or stop by The Creamery, located at 411 North Sherman Parkway, and bid in person.
