Art from the ♥

History of Art from the ♥

Art from the ♥  is an initiative started by Tampa artist Mark Gonzalez. In 2015, Mark donated works to 17 local non-profit organizations. Many of the pieces were auctioned, raising more than $22K for local charities.

In 2016, the Gallery at Carrollwood Cultural Center, in conjunction with Gonzalez, invited local artists and art collectors to donate pieces to be auctioned in an effort to raise funds for the Gallery. The Main Entrance at the Center featured a collection of artwork donated by artists in support of the project.
