The annual Building Bridges Art Celebration & Auction, which was held at the Hilton Austin on October 15 was THE art extravaganza to attend in Austin. This year’s 10th annual event debuted more than 150 pieces of art from artists, including the Arc of the Art students. There were more than 100 silent auction packages and the live auction included trips to New York City, Napa Valley and San Diego with an excursion on America’s Cup winner “Stars & Stripes.” Pictured to the left are:
