Julie Ross Art Auction and Book to Benefit Art Center Sarasota Youth Programs

RocketKids Article

A year and a half ago, the family and friends of Sarasota artist Julie Ross mourned her sudden passing. Now, alongside the community, they are celebrating and continuing her legacy through "The Julie Ross Legacy Project" designed to showcase Ross' work and passion for fostering a love of the arts within kids. Over the past year, the Julie Ross Legacy Project, formed by Christopher Klaus, Olivia Hoefling and Jana Hoefling, has released a book titled, Julie Ross: A Lifetime of Creation, a collection of artwork showcasing Ross' various styles over the course of her lifetime compiled to share her artwork for generations to come. The project also auctioned 38 pieces of Ross' artwork in conjunction with Freedom Auction Company with a second auction coming on April 30, 2023. Proceeds from both the auctions and art book will benefit Art Center Sarasota’s Youth Programs. "The Julie Ross Legacy Project is a beautiful way to honor Julie's life and work," said Christopher Klaus, co-founder of the project. "Through this initiative, we hope to continue her legacy and inspire future generations to appreciate the arts." The Julie Ross Legacy Project is a testament to the impact that artists can have on their communities, and the project's efforts to support youth programs make it an even more meaningful endeavor.  To purchase Julie Ross: A Lifetime of Creation visit the following online retailers below though linktree. https://linktr.ee/julierossartist: Bookstore 1 Sarasota, Strand, Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Powells, Books a Million, Booktopia, Books Inc., AbeBooks.
