Attention all art lovers. Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity is creating an art show and silent auction from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Oct. 22 at the Dakota Medical Foundation, 4152 30th Ave S, Fargo, ND.

Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity (LAHH) will be partnering with local artists to come together and create beautiful art in this year’s “Home is Where the Art Is” event.

This showcase and silent auction gives artists and art lovers the ability to help their community by admiring original and environment-friendly art.

Artists will have until the end of the month to shop at ReStore located at 210 11th St N in Moorhead, MN. ReStore is a center for usable materials that originated from local landfills. Artists use these materials and turn them into original art. The art is then returned to people’s homes for their enjoyment.

This year, LAHH will offer two classes for all ages. From 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., kids will be able to become artists. From 4:30-6:30 p.m. adults will have an opportunity to paint their own canvas. This year will also have Kwaician Traylor, a special music guest. They will also feature artists like Ashley Kunz, a Moorhead painter with a fresh outlook on modern art. 

Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity is a locally-run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. It is a nonprofit ecumenical Christian housing organization with an overall goal to create simple, decent, affordable housing in partnership with those in need in Cass and Clay counties. LAHH has partnered with a total of 45 local families to build houses.
