Provincetown, MA - An exquisite quilt, handmade by textile artist Julia Willecke, is being auctioned off by WOMR, the community radio station announced today.
The quilt is a joyous riot of rainbow colors with a subdued elegant backing and measures four by five feet. It is valued at $500, with an opening bid of $200 and a minimum $25 bid thereafter.
“We are so fortunate to have such talented artists on the Cape and as part of our WOMR family,” says John Braden, WOMR’s executive director. “We’re delighted at Julia’s generous gift and hope it will generate a lot of energy—and bids! Whoever takes this home will be very lucky, and very warm.”
WOMR recently announced its capital improvement campaign’s goals were met through community participation and grants. The campaign to modernize, upgrade, and replace the broadcasting infrastructure was successful and the studio upgrades are in process. However, none of those monies covers the station’s ongoing operating expenses, which rely heavily on membership pledges and events. Proceeds from the quilt auction will go toward those expenses.
Bidding for the quilt is now open at www.womr.org and will close on December 16, 2019, at 3:00pm EST.
