Artopia 2024 – Call for Artists

Published March 18, 2024


Artopia 2024 Cover Art “Knowledge” by Anna Edson McBride

Do you make art or have art you want to rehome? Artopia, Tallahassee’s largest charity art auction, is planning its 26th annual event, and we need your help!

Big Bend Cares is proud to host Artopia 2024 at the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center on Saturday, June 22nd. Over its 26 years running, Artopia has only been possible through donations from local artists and community members. You’ve helped us raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for our clients in need to have food, transportation, housing, and health care. This year, we need your support more than ever. Please consider donating a piece of artwork for our auction.

Artopia is a great opportunity to have your work seen by the art creating and art buying populations in Tallahassee, and with everyone under one roof, it’s a great opportunity for networking! Artopia has been host to many FSU Visual Arts students and Alumni, including last year’s cover artist, Melissa Davis. Art donated to Artopia is tax-deductible, and we are happy to provide a free General Admission ticket to the event for each piece donated, up to three.

If you have any questions, please contact Serene Smallwood at or 850-656-2437 x224.
