Art Night Raises $1,000 for Class

MU College of Veterinary Medicine students Jennifer Ballard (right) and Ruth Reiha place paintings created by Reiha’s daughter Raven on display for Art NightPerformers, fledging chefs, a photographer and a budding painter were among the amateur and professional artists who contributed their talents to make the Class of 2011’s Art Night a success.

“It was the most successful fundraiser to date for the class,” said event coordinator Jennifer Ballard.

The event, held in the Adams Conference Center, attracted more than 50 attendees, primarily students, faculty and friends. Offerings included the works of 15 visual artists, five performance artists and some food artists who sold their treats. The class also raised money by selling cookbooks to inspire those who prefer to make their own art.

A silent auction was held as part of the evening’s activities with items sold that were donated by Hallmark, Treats Unleashed, Zou café owner Cindy Durk and her husband, professional photographer Kent Durk, Jbat Photography, and Dr. Cristi Cook, a veterinarian and photographer.

The event placed about $1,000 in the class coffers, which will be used to pay for the welcome picnic for the new first-year students.
