Save The Basin Art Auction

Sunday, January 28th | 11:30 AM-5:30 PM

Join us for 4th annual Save the Basin Art Auction on Sunday, January 28th from 11:30 -5:30 PM at Artmosphere in Downtown Lafayette! Enjoy bottomless mimosas during Sunday Brunch with live music and a silent auction featuring Louisiana artists who are inspired by the beauty of the Atchafalaya Basin.

All proceeds from the event – including 10 percent of all food and drink profits – will go directly to supporting Atchafalaya Basinkeeper and funding its fight to protect and restore the Basin. The Basin is the most productive swamp in the world and is vitally important to our Cajun culture. It is a remarkable place of beauty which supports a unique ecosystem of cypress found nowhere else on the planet, our fishing and crawfishing economy, and plays a significant role as a safe harbor for thousands of migratory birds and coastal communities who rely on its flood protection. As the Atchafalaya Basin provides SUCH a huge part of our livelihood, local recreation, and heritage, it is critical that we use our best resource: you, our community, to come together to protect it.

Live music will be provided by Mitch Reed, Tony Davoren, and Pete Dawson of Celjun, Sweet Cecilia, Rebecca Richard Music and more to be announced.

Guest speakers including President of Louisiana Crawfish Producers Association West (LCPA West) Jody Meche will also be presenting on our many victories and current threats facing the Basin.

Admission is $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Donate $10 along with your ticket price on the day of the event, and receive a year long membership to Atchafalaya Basinkeeper!
