Our Virginia Center for the Book Book Arts program provides equipment and training resources for individual artists and community members to learn and practice creative arts.

To support their ongoing work, we invite you to join us for the 15th annual Raucous Auction!

This year’s theme is UNCHARTED, the 2019 members’ project, which explores imaginary maps—maps of an idea, of feelings, of make-believe places, or of new ways to represent visual information that guides or describes the world.

Now in its fifteenth year, the Raucous Auction showcases one-of-a-kind experiences alongside unique pieces of art and other creative items. The funds raised support the ongoing operations of our Book Arts Studio as well as special projects including workshops with local youth.

Our goal for this year’s event is $20,000.
Admission is FREE but a $20 donation is suggested.

This year, the entire auction is online! Register and start bidding now »

5:30-7:00 – Auction – Auditorium of the African American Heritage Center, Jefferson School City Center
