I’m always impressed with how generous artists can be.
We saw that evidence in Totoro Forest Auction a few years back. Now, this one also got many renowned artists showed their beautiful souls!
There are some amazing art created for this show and you better look into it if you are art collectors.
Lots of them are still at VERY reasonable prices. I know I’m going to try to bid on a few!
This charity auction is up only until the end of the week.(3/13)
—-About This Auction—-
As an extension of the documentary BROWNSTONES TO RED DIRT, Copper Pot Pictures has paired with Schools for Salone to hold an online art auction to benefit kids in need in Sierra Leone and New York. The auction includes over 150 pieces created by some of the top names in animation as well as children’s book, graphic novel and comic illustration, including some amazing talents such as Jeremy Gedds, Shaun Tan, and Olivier Tossan!
Each artist was given a blank birchwood postcard and asked to create a unique work based on the theme, “PEN PALS.” All proceeds will be used to build a school for war orphans in Freetown, Sierra Leone and to develop a library for at-risk youth in Brooklyn. Winning bids will be tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Please visit our blog to see all of the cards: http://btorpostcards.blogspot.com/
