We recently received this note from the Yale School of Art:
New Haven — A silent auction of original art work to benefit victims of hurricane Sandy will be held at the Green Gallery of Yale School of Art, 1156 Chapel St., on Wednesday, Dec. 5.
All of the work being auctioned was created and donated by students and faculty of the school — Rochelle Feinstein, David Humphrey, and Mary Reid Kelley among them. An estimated 50 pieces, most suitable for hanging, will be on view at the gallery beginning at 6 p.m. The highest bidders will be announced at 8 p.m.
Computer monitors set up in the gallery will allow winners to donate the proceeds of the sale to one or more of the charities preselected by the auction organizers.
