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.
This is the story.
Here is some of the incredible art.
These two are Jen Riley’s pieces.
At my guess I would say there were probably 300-400 people that filtered through during the night.
Here are some of the other Art pieces.
This art is made up of cigarette box tin foil. Pretty ingenious art.
Thanks for everyone that supported this event including hippyads.com, and brightneighbor.com
