The University of Arizona’s Art History Graduate Student Association (AHGSA)... Second Annual AHGSA Silent Auction

The University of Arizona’s Art History Graduate Student Association (AHGSA) is
requesting donations in kind for our Second Annual AHGSA Silent Auction, a fundraiser to
help finance our 23rrd annual Art History Graduate Symposium.
The objective of AHGSA is to promote interest in the discipline of Art History. To do
this, we provide fellowship among students and faculty within the Division of Art History at
the University of Arizona, and promote collaboration with our colleagues in the Division of
Art and Visual Culture Education. Additionally, AHGSA provides a forum for the
presentation of innovative ideas to the benefit of the University and Tucson communities.
Since the spring of 1990, AHGSA has organized an annual Art History Graduate
Symposium. This highly successful event forms an essential part of the professional
development of Art History graduate students at the University of Arizona. This symposium
provides a forum for graduate students in Art History and related disciplines—such as Art
Education, Visual Culture, and Cultural Studies—to present scholarly research and engage in
intellectual debate.
AHGSA and its annual symposium are entirely self-sustaining, receiving no funds from
the University of Arizona. As such, fundraising occupies a large portion of our efforts as an
organization. Last year, we hosted our first AHGSA silent auction, an event which was
so successful that we have decided to make it an annual event. What made the auction such
a success was the generous donations of local businesses like yours! We would greatly
appreciate any donation your business can provide (large or small!).
This year’s AHGSA Silent Auction will this November in Tucson, and will be attended
by important members and supporters of the Tucson arts community. We would happily
acknowledge your generous support appropriate signage and recognition in our auction and
spring Symposium programs. Further still, we invite you to include a small stack of brochures
or business cards to display with your donation.
