Gold Key Gala

2021 POVA Gold Key Gala

2021 Gala Chair: Jennifer Konyn, Gala Chair-Elect: Beka Stanfield

The Gold Key Gala is the annual fundraising event supporting Poverty and the Arts (POVA) and the artists impacted by homelessness in our Collective. Through the exhibition and sale of their artwork, artists earn income, network with community members, and have the opportunity to thrive at this unique, one-of-a-kind annual Nashville event. 

This year’s Gold Key Gala will be held on Saturday, February 20, 2021, and guests will enjoy our first-ever “Build Your Own Experience” virtual event. The base ticket includes access to an online silent auction and kick-off party, free art delivery, and access to our exclusive interactive virtual art show. In addition to the base ticket, there are "add-on" options, such as a take-home meal kit, virtual Q&A with a POVA artist, a virtual painting class, and more.  

Our gala attendees are essential partners in our mission to help artists impacted by homelessness leverage their creative talent to earn income and create their own sustainable solutions. Just last year alone, over 250 people attended our in-person gala event which raised over $25,000, sold almost $7,000 of original artwork, and distributed $4,200 to 14 artists impacted by homelessness in Nashville, TN. All proceeds from our virtual gala event will support our artists through program expansion.
