The Ah Haa School for the Arts is a center for the arts in Telluride  who’s overall goal is to nurture the creative spirit. At the Ah Haa School, we believe every person harbors an artistic  ability, and that everyone – including the community at large – benefits from exploring and developing that ability.

Each summer the Ah Haa School for Arts in Telluride picks a radically different theme for their annual art auction, from Laugh-In to Road Trip, to this year’s theme of Artopia. You are probably wondering "Why is this called ARTopia? What is that?" Well, the definition for the word utopia means "an imaginary place considered perfect or ideal". Here at the Ah Haa School for the Arts, imaginations of students come ALIVE! So ARTopia is a perfect place to let your imagine run, and your creativity fly! It's where we can honor our creativity, meaning it's a place we create, reward, and respect our creative selves.

Ah Haa’s 18th Annual Art Auction
Friday, July 23, 2010, 5:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m.

This annual fundraiser consists of energy-charged live and silent auctions, with over 200 items of original art, services and trips donated by the region’s artists, businesses and supporters of the Ah Haa. Many of the pieces that will be on the auction block have been specifically made for this event by our community’s talented artists. Celebrity artist, Bill Kreutzmann, former Grateful Dead drummer, has placed his unique artwork on a pair of Wagoner Skis which will be custom made for the winning bidder.  The live auction will also feature the artwork of Ally Crilly, Susie Billings, Julee Hucthinson, Nicole Finger, Flair Robinson, and of course an art car which is a 1967 VW bug coolly decorated with an earthy charm. 
ARTopia is Ah Haa’s largest and most important fundraising event of the year. It supports the school’s operations, specifically, the spectrum of programs and workshops offered by the school. Your attendance and generous support allow the Ah Haa to continue improving and diversifying course offerings, improving program excellence, and serving new audiences.  

Ah Haa encourages everyone to attend this one of a kind event! Doors open at 5:00 p.m. for silent auction bidding, and the live auction begins promptly at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 per person and are purchased at the door on the night of the event.
