‘Artist for Emanuel’ gather work to display, auction following tragedy at Mother Emanuel Church

Artists for Emanuel is a group of more than 90 visual artists from Charleston, SC, who are creating a body of work for display and auction responding to their personal grief to the tragedy at Mother Emanuel AME Church.

The auction will benefit the Lowcountry Unity Fund and spark emotional responses for love, community, and unity to honor the families and the fallen.

The Lowcountry Unity Fund was formed by the Coastal Community Foundation in response to the tragedy at Mother Emanuel for the purpose of promoting long-term solutions that address systemic issues contributing to racism and economic inequality in African-American communities.
