Silent Auction closes at 9 p.m.
at The Southern Letterpress/Studio Ippiki
3700 St. Claude Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70117
The event is free and open to the public, no tickets required.

Founded in 2005, SIFT is an entirely volunteer staffed organization of visual artists and craftspeople exploring the intersections of sequence, image, form, and text.
All of the money raised at In Like Lions will provide funds to expand the lectures, studio tours, exhibitions and additional programming the organization provides to the New Orleans public.
SIFT organizes Close Quarters, a free and open-to-the-public quarterly visit to a New Orleans art, craft, or design studio.
SIFT’s regular Community Happy Hour provides a venue to build community and network for area artists, designers, craftspeople and anyone with an interest in book arts. SIFT also produces curated exhibitions and portfolio exchanges, and publishes collaborative book arts projects such as Parametric Prompts and Hidden Spaces.
A special thank you to our sponsors.
And thank you to everyone who donated to SIFT to make the auction and raffle special.
