Art auction in Huntington helps Marshall students

Posted: Updated:

An art auction helped raise money for local artists in Huntington Tuesday evening.

Paintings, pictures, and sculptures were auctioned off at Black Sheep Burritos and Brews for the Study Abroad program.

The money goes to support art students to take a trip to Florence, Italy and get an in-depth look at the fine arts.

Organizers say selling their artwork and gaining a customer base is part of being an artist.

All proceeds go to provide funding for trips to Florence, Siena, and Assisi.
