The Eye of the Artist event is AAI's second largest fundraiser.  Artists donate a piece of art to be raffled.   The money is used by the AAI to fund art education, exhibitions, grants and public art projects. Because this is a fundraising event, artists are welcome to enter one piece of artwork for judging in more than one art category.  

People who buy raffle tickets at the event may win up to 5 pieces of art.

This year and this event only, the AAI will be awarding cash prizes to ribbon winners in each category as follows:

First Place, Best of Show and Best Theme - $200

Second Place - $150

Third Place - $100
