Celebrating Nature as a Work of Art

A Benefit for Audubon de Mexico’s Ninos y Naturaleza Program

The Wild Art Festival is an incredible evening of art, music, tapas and libations set within a beautiful garden environment, featuring…

50 SMALL WORKS    At the Festival you will find nature inspired small works of original art created and donated by talented local artists.  Each artist has taken on the challenge of creating their work using a 10″x10 base that was provided to them.

The works will be exhibited and sold at silent auction.  Each piece is exhibited anonymously, with the identity of the artist being revealed only after the work is purchased.

5 GARDEN/INDOOR BENCHES    Wooden benches, perfect for an indoor or outdoor setting, crafted by students of our local school for the deaf, and embellished by five talented artists will be offered by silent auction. 

WHIMSICAL WALKING STICKS    Hand-carved walking sticks, painted and adorned by students and teachers in our Ninos y Naturaleza program, will be on sale for 500 pesos.

FRIDA & AMIGOS QUILT   Custom, handmade quilt by the SMA Quilters, made from Mexican-inspired fabric from Abrazos/San Miguel Designs. Perfect for a lovely wall hanging or cozy cover.  All fabrics are 100% cotton.  Size:  60.5” x 68” (154 cm x173 cm)  Offered by silent auction.

ANGEL SCULPTURE      This tranquil angel was created by noted sculptor Anne Marie Slipper, who passed away in 2018. Limited bronze edition sculpture (#2 of 24), signed and numbered by the artist.  16″ high.  Offered by silent auction.
