Smith Fine Arts Series

Home » 2020 Auction & Dinner


The Smith Fine Arts Series at Western Oregon University brings world-class performing arts to the mid-Willamette Valley. SFAS also offers workshops with visiting artists to WOU students and the greater community; provides educational outreach for children grades K-12; and distributes performance tickets to students, all at no cost to participants. This work ensures rich, cultural experiences for people of all ages and backgrounds in Monmouth, Independence, and beyond—but it could not be carried out without the help of local businesses and individuals.

This year’s 20th Annual Dinner and Auction takes place on Sunday, November 15, and we hope to see you there! Check back here for more details as the event draws closer.


This annual event is fueled by the energy, connections, and comradery of our community volunteers. From procuring auction items and assembling gift baskets, to running errands and making phone calls, to decorating and setting up/cleaning up the day of, there’s a place for everyone. Bring your skills and enthusiasm to this year’s event. Consider volunteering with a friend. Giving your time is truly a way to give back to the Arts in our community.
