Fundraiser for North Beach Citizens.

Filed under: nonprofits,photographs — Tags: , , , — Towse @ 12:24 am

Missed the opening blowout for the latest fundraiser for North Beach Citizens tonight. 6-9pm at Gallery 28 on Grant. (We were at an event at the San Francisco Food Bank. I won’t even =begin= to tell you the other events that were happening citywide.)

Famous folks with their fundraising art. Less famous folks with theirs. All for a good cause. BUY! SPEND! DONATE!

This, of course, is mine — a collage titled, “Cool, Grey City of Love.” Challenge was to take an LP and create some art on it. The theme was VINYL TRANSFORMATION. You couldn’t do something 3-D but anything else was up for grabs.

This photo of my collage maybe not so hot, eh? But the collage is worth $5, don’t you think? $10? Who will give me $20 for a GOOD CAUSE! HERE, FOLKS! $50?

I haven’t seen what Ferlinghetti, or Hirschman did, and I couldn’t be at the blowout tonight, alas. Check in with Gallery 28 on Grant to see what the other donees did and spend money for a good cause.

Couldn’t make it to the opening reception and want to bid in person? There will be a closing reception on 26 March 2011, with poetry reading and auction.

  1. This piece wound up fetching $109 in the silent auction. All proceeds when to North Beach Citizens. What a fun, creative fundraiser.
