Community members can support art programs in Albuquerque Public Schools by attending the "A is for Art!" gala auction on Friday night.

The event features a silent auction that raises funds for the APS Education Foundation and Fine Arts Department, as well as giving student artists a percentage of the sales for their work.

Singer Mary Miranda, who shot to fame on NBC's "The Voice," will also perform at the event.

The gala auction lasts from 5-9 p.m. at the Hotel Albuquerque. Tickets are on sale for $25 for adults and $10 for students.
