The Detroit International Wine Auction (DIWA) is the primary fund-raising event for the College for Creative Studies. The 2012 event raised more than $1.5 million dollars for undergraduate student scholarships and free community art programs for high-risk Detroit youth. The College is committed to providing increased levels of financial aid to talented young artists and designers, who are at risk of not being able to return to CCS in the fall due to their families’ financial hardships.
The Student Exhibition Opening reception and sale annually showcases the best student artwork from each CCS department. Proceeds from art sales go directly to students, while proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorships help fund scholarships and community outreach programs. The Student Exhibition has grown into one of the nation’s best events – and opportunities – of its kind, for art lovers and buyers as well as those who appreciate the value of marketing to such valuable audiences.
