Buy art. Give shelter.

Art 4 Shelter is an annual fundraiser for Simpson Housing Services. It’s an art sale and auction featuring original works by emerging and established artists. Proceeds benefit Simpson’s mission to house, support, and advocate for people experiencing homelessness.

Every year, hundreds of generous artists donate original works of art to this massive exhibition and sale. The pieces are displayed anonymously and offered for a fixed, affordable price ($35 for a 5”x7” image, $75 for an 8”x10” image, etc.). Attendees are invited to explore and then pluck whatever art compels them right off the walls, not knowing until after they purchased the art if it was created by an established favorite or an emerging artist. It’s like a treasure hunt, a night of discovery, and a showcase of our massively talented creative community all in one.

Thanks to Art 4 Shelter, we’ve raised over $1.2 million to house, support, and advocate for people experiencing homelessness. 

By donating or buying art, you can help Simpson work to end homelessness.
