LAU ARTSRISING - Emergency Financial Aid Fund
Lebanese American University, in collaboration with ArtScoops, is proud to present LAU's first online art auction, titled LAU ArtsRising. The auction features a wide range of artwork by several notable Lebanese and international artists. From thought provoking portraits to scenic vistas, each of the pieces curated embraces Henri Matisse's mantra that "creativity takes courage".
Since the 1800s Beirut has been a center for art and culture and LAU has continued to reflect that artistic tradition. LAU's forerunner, the American School for Girls (1835) recognized the significance of fine arts and this continues to be the case today; LAU offers one of the few English language fine arts programs in the region.
Lebanon is facing one of the most challenging periods in its long history, but students, alumni, faculty, and staff at LAU are rising to the occasion.
All the proceeds from LAU ArtsRising will help support the Emergency Financial Aid Fund, an initiative to help bridge our students' and their families' financial gap during this national crisis in Lebanon.
We want to express our gratitude to the artists, galleries, and donors for their support in putting this auction together.
Support Beirut. Support Art. Support our Students.
