The Crucible’s 2022 Fire & Light Soirée and Art Auction
Join us for our signature fundraiser, the Fire & Light Soirée and Art Auction, on Saturday, May 21 for the first time in two years. For one night only, the newly renovated gardens at the Oakland Museum of California will transform into a sparkling outdoor space to support The Crucible.
We have a special lineup of honorees, amazing auction items, including beautiful sculptures and functional art contributed by Crucible artists, and live demos from our Glass Blowing and Welding Departments made possible through the use of our Educational Response Vehicle (ERV), a fire truck converted into a mobile classroom!
Your support will help us raise over $250,000 and ensure that, in the coming year, all young people have access to The Crucible’s Industrial Arts Education Programs, regardless of family income.
Above all, this event celebrates the transformational power of making and creative risk-taking. It is an occasion to recognize and pay tribute to the people who inspire us and help to safeguard the future of arts education in our community. And we will party in blazing style with friends, family, and colleagues! Join us!
