The Donkey Mill Art Center’s 16th annual art auction Splash! celebrates the impact of the arts beyond the Mill and the resounding influence of the arts to inspire and strengthen individual and collective well-being. The Mill has been making a “splash” for over twenty-five years, activating waves which continue to build and resonate into the community and world, far beyond the boundaries of the Mill’s campus.
