The Magic Bus Art Auction – sponsored by Aicon Gallery and IREO – took place on Thursday, June 25th, 2015 in New York City. Guests came together to celebrate art as a tool for experiential learning..

The evening saw artwork by Sanat Kar, MF Husain (Herwitz Collection), Yogesh Rawal, Shreya Mehta, Rolley Bhardwaj, Aranka Israni, and youth from the Magic Bus program in India. Funds raised from the auctioned pieces will be used to provide a full year scholarship and mentoring for 6 Magic Bus girls as part of the Magic Bus Women’s Scholar fund.
