The auction is silent but the impact of Artopia 2017 is immense. Local and regional artists donate their artwork, including a few signed and numbered limited editions. Money raised from the annual event held at the Tucker Civic Center on Saturday benefits Big Bend Cares. The Tallahassee-based nonprofit provides education and comprehensive support to people infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS, serving Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty, Madison, Franklin, Taylor, and Wakulla Counties.
