artma is a unique, funky, fabulous art auction and fund-raising extravaganza like no other and is embraced by those that believe deeply in the healing power of art. Started in 2001, artma is a biennial (once every 2 years) auction of art, generously donated by local, regional, and nationally recognized artists. At each highly anticipated event, artma hosts over 1,000 guests and sells over 200 pieces of art to benefit the Morgan Adams Foundation.
artma was created to support doctors and researchers who are tirelessly searching for a cure to pediatric cancer. The Morgan Adams Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life and survival rates for children, teens, and young adults diagnosed with cancer.
artma was created in loving memory of Morgan Adams, who passed away in November of 1998 at the age of 6 just 11 months after being diagnosed with a glioblastoma multiforme brain tumor. artma is one way that MAF seeks to increase funding resources, thereby giving greater support to pediatric oncology research efforts.
