I have to share this amazing evening from right before Halloween.  Jennifer Riley from hippyads.com took the bull by the horns, and created a artist challenge at the 2008 Down the River Cleanup (DRC).  She organized 6 artists to create artwork from the 2008 DRC and then teamed up with the Green Source, and Bright Neighbor to host a party, and art show.

This event was the Thursday before Halloween, and was a blowout success.  Almost 90% of all the artwork was sold, and Riley helped raise about $1000 for the River Cleanup Artshow effort.  Here are some of the art pieces that these wizards turned from trash to art.

At my guess I would say there were probably 300-400 people that filtered through during the night.
