Welcome to the Curaçao Lions Club ArtX website! After almost two years we are back with the second edition of our art-themed fundraising and awareness event on March 17, 2018!
We are happy you are taking the time to get to know us a little bit and most importantly to help support the many causes that are close to our Lion hearts.
- The Curaçao Lions Club
Founded in 1946, our Club has a legacy of over 70 years of working tirelessly to serve the less fortunate in our community. Over the years we have supported many causes and initiated a wide range of projects to serve the needs of our community. Through time, the community and its needs have changed. At the Curaçao Lions Club we try our best to adapt to those changes to keep helping those who need it the most and create awareness
- ArtX by the Curaçao Lions Club
ArtX is a modest art festival with a big heart and even bigger ambitions. The X stands for Xperience, Xplosion and your imagination. With this festival the Curaçao Lions club wants to create more awareness about Art in our society. Curaçao is a treasure chest full of talent, but unfortunately our island does not have the means to fully stimulate art education and support its many artistic talents.
ArtX invites local artists to showcase their artwork and make one special piece available for a fundraising art auction. We are talking paintings, sculptures, photography, graffiti, you name it! In line with our desire to create awareness about the value and benefits of art in society, we do not ask the artists to donate their pieces. The artists are compensated for their artwork based on pre-set conditions established between the Club and the artists. Of course, artists who wish to donate their work are always welcome to do so.
On April 23rd 2016, we organized the first edition of ArtX Art Auction. A total of 34 local artists participated and generously made their artwork available for the auction. The community also responded well and the Curaçao Lions Club was able to raise a total of ANG 39,000 to help support our causes.
