It’s a great equalizer: Over 550 hundred pieces of art, each $40. Buy what speaks to you, buy what you love and then you’ll learn who the artist is. The art, created on 4″ x 6″ pieces of white paper by people from all walks of life–animators, celebrities, fine artists, teachers, students, parents–is part of a benefit night for Burbank’s Arts For All Foundation, this Saturday, November 1. BAFA is a nonprofit group that works to ensure all Burbank public school children receive arts enrichment through grants and funding for a variety of programs for all ages.
Who will your secret artist be? Gary Baseman? Conan O’Brien? Mark Dean Veca? Film directors Gore Verbinksi and Brett Ratner? TV weatherman Fritz Coleman? A star from True Blood or Devious Maids? Top animator or graphic novelist? An original Burbank student artist? All Secret Artists will be revealed the night of the event, once you buy your piece! The full list is here.
Trena Pitchford, BAFA’s Director of Development told MyBurbank.com:
We are overwhelmed by the amazing artists, celebrities, dignitaries, local talents, students and animators who have donated their time to create original works of art to benefit the much needed art programs for Burbank public school students. The artwork is simply fantastic and I encourage everyone to come out for a fun filled evening.
