Important: The Auction ends Monday, September 14, at 6 pm.
Rhinebeck Responds has teamed up with local artists and celebrities to create the ‘Better Together’ auction of wonderfully unique and imaginatively hand painted birdhouses. The painters include some of the best-known Hudson Valley artists across a range of media, plus film and TV celebrities, Hilarie Burton, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Paul Rudd, and Griffin Dunne, all of whom have made Rhinebeck their home.
The online auction runs from August 21 through September 14. The 36 painted boxes are on display in shop windows throughout Rhinebeck Village.
Purpose of Birdhouse Auction
The ‘Better Together’ Birdhouse Auction is raising money for Rhinebeck Responds’ Small Grants Fund that is assisting local small businesses coping with impacts of the coronavirus pandemic and economic collapse. The grants program, launched in early June, is open to small independent businesses located within town or village of Rhinebeck. The program provides grants of up to $5000 apiece, based on applications and funds available. See: RhinebeckResponds.org for more details or rhinebeckresponds.org/where-to-donate to donate.
