Best of the Nest Birdhouse Auction 2018

The Emmaus Arts Commission is excited to re-invent our annual fundraiser by launching the "Best of the Nest" Birdhouse Auction!

bird house auctionThanks to a donation from a generous local craftsman, we have a selection of handcrafted wooden birdhouses just waiting to be turned into works of art by the talented artists of the Lehigh Valley. We are inviting artists to paint or decorate these birdhouses to help us promote the arts in Emmaus in a unique and inspired way.

Are you interested in participating in this fun and creative community project? Interested applicants are encouraged to review our Call To Artists/Prospectus and apply for consideration via our Artist Application. Deadline for application is April 1;  accepted artists will be notified on April 8.

Selected parties will have 7 weeks to complete their "vision" with one of our birdhouses (of which we have three styles), and the final pieces will be offered up for auction at the Farmer's Market this June. In-between the market dates, all the birdhouses will be showcased as a collection at Herbein's Garden Center in Emmaus. The auction will commence in early July. All proceeds benefit the EAC and will be used to fund future arts programming in our community.

Get inspired, get involved, help out our feathered friends, and apply today!
