Participate in the InLiquid Benefit
Please note due to the Omicron Surge the Benefit has been rescheduled to November 2022. We still encourage submitting early to increase marketing opportunities. Deadline for submissions will be August 5, 2022.
You are personally invited to be a part of our annual Silent Auction & Benefit, November of 2022. The auction will be spread out over the course of two weeks to allow multiple options for viewers to both engage with the work during intimate viewing times as well as in a reception atmosphere. The InLiquid Benefit will feature 200 works of art in the IceBox Project Space of the Crane Arts Building in Kensington, and simultaneously feature everything online, for those who cannot attend in person.
As a part of the “Everyone is a Collector Campaign,” to support artists and make collecting accessible to all, InLiquid will be increasing its online and virtual marketing efforts this year. These efforts will be executed through creating digital catalogs of the auction works, highlighting guest collector picks, and targeted social media posts. The extra week of installation time will allow for us to create more marketing and press opportunities for the work on display.
The InLiquid Benefit consistently engages with the area’s collectors, curators, designers, press, influencers, and entrepreneurs.
Most importantly, proceeds from The Benefit sustain artists and InLiquid’s vital programming operations. Since 1999 InLiquid has been working to connect artists and audiences in Philadelphia, because everyone needs art in their lives. We increasingly find ourselves creating opportunities to use art as a catalyst for civic engagement and expressions of calls for social change.
Funds raised from the Benefit will support InLiquid in providing free arts programming to over 25,000 people in person and over 100,000 unique web visitors annually. Last year alone, InLiquid worked with 644 artists to advance their careers and present their work to new audiences with free art exhibitions, hands-on workshops, and creative events in person and online.
You will receive 50% of the final bid on your piece, unless you wish to donate more of the % to InLiquid to help support our exhibitions, programming, and services. InLiquid will be screening submissions.
Submissions can be done by PDF or by using the form below.
We hope you will join us in supporting you and serving the region’s artists!
