Habitat for Humanity of McLean County and the local chapter of the International Interior Design Association have teamed up for a local fundraiser like no other.  Artiture is the fine art of giving old furniture a new twist, and giving folks a roof over their heads.  

  • The fundraiser is Saturday, June 25th from 6 to 9 p.m. at Epiphany Farms Restaurant in Bloomington.
  • Local artists create one-of-a-kind items that are then auctioned off to benefit Habitat.
  • Many of the items are created from reclaimed or found materials and are then repurposed into stunning pieces of furniture and art.
  • Organizers feel this is a great pairing of home construction and interior design, and that a shared vision will help ensure success.
  • In addition to the auction, there's a member of the Zoo Crew offering to paint faces, ankles, shoulders, and hands.
  • They hope to raise in excess of $5,000 with the event.
  • Tickets are available through Habitat.
