Does Your Home or Office Suffer from Empty Wall Syndrome?

The Red Dot Auction Is the Recommended Cure!

Which Artist’s Work Will You Take Home Tonight?

Tickets Available Here!

Costa Mesa, CA: You’ll find the cure for “Empty Wall Syndrome” at the Red Dot Auction. Hundreds of artists from around the globe have contributed one or more 12” square canvases to this special fundraising event. What differentiates The Red Dot Auction from other silent art auctions is that all of the contributing artists have signed their artwork on the reverse of the canvas. Consequently, attendees at the event will not know who the artist is when bidding, they’ll only have their heart to follow. “We wanted to create a fun, engaging silent auction, and to further the suspense of not knowing which work belongs to which artist,” noted Jane Saunders, President of the Council for Creativity which organizes this event in the spring and the Center’s “Play It Forward” fundraiser in the fall.

“The artists who are participating come from all levels of notoriety, skill, and accomplishment, from students to emerging to established artists; we reached out around the world hoping to capture the imagination and appreciation of these artists. We are thankful that they were willing to help us achieve our goal of promoting creativity by providing a nurturing environment where it may grow and blossom,” said Craig Kausen, Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Center.

Participating artists include “Dora the Explorer” producer and director, Jeff DeGrandis; Eric Goldberg, longtime Disney animator and director; noted children’s book illustrator, Carolyn Le, and Marian Jones, photographer, author, and Chuck Jones’s wife.

The Red Dot Auction will take place on Friday, May 13th, from 7 to 10 PM at the Center located at South Coast Collection (SoCo), 3321 Hyland Avenue, Costa Mesa, California. Admission is $25.00 per person ($35 per at the door) and open to the public. Buy your tickets by April 25th and receive 5 free raffle tickets when you sign in at the front desk the evening of the event. To buy tickets online, go to   

A Preview night is scheduled for Thursday, May 12, 2016 from 7 to 9 and will include a tribute to the contributing artists, a musical performance by students of Music Vault Academy, and a brief “Chuck Talk” by Eric & Bill Teitelbaum, known for their nationally syndicated comic strip “Bottomliners” and their educational programs they bring to schools and universities around the country. Tickets for the Preview Night are $100 per person and are available at
