Art Blocks for Ghana Exhibition and Auction

The Picture Book Project Foundation (PBP) presents Art Blocks for Ghana — an exhibit and charity art auction to benefit orphaned children in Ghana, West Africa. Sponsored by Digital Domain Media Group and AOL Artists, Art Blocks for Ghana features original works created by top artists within the animation and illustration community. The collection will be auctioned online beginning March 12, 2011. Additionally, PBP will host fundraising events in New York and Los Angeles where guests can preview the collection before it goes up for auction and meet some of the artists involved.
PBP created the Art Blocks for Ghana project to raise money to pay for the boarding school costs of 13 orphaned children who were formerly cared for by the now defunct Save the Widows and Orphans Development Center in Ho, Ghana. Contributing artists are employed by studios such as DreamWorks Animation, Pixar Animation Studios, Blue Sky Studios, Marathon Media, ILM, Disney, Sony, Digital Domain, AOL Artists, as well as award-winning illustrators. A variety of artists have contributed from Canada, France, Sweden, Australia, Germany and The United Kingdom.
PBP provided the artists with wood panels to serve as the canvas for their creations. Each panel represents the “building blocks” every child needs to build a bright future – food, shelter, education and opportunity. All artwork was created around the common theme, “Home.” With children who do not have a single place to call home in mind, the artists explored the concept of the word and its many different meanings, such as comfort, life, nature, shelter, friends, love.
A wide variety of mediums – from oils, acrylic and gouache to mixed media, collage, screen print and sculpture – were used to create the pieces. Contributing artists and PBP are documenting the development process on a dedicated Art Block Process blog.

Benefit for the Birds-Update

I know that many of you are just as concerned/disgusted by the oil spill in the gulf and its affect on local wildlife. Please support this collaborative project through Project Space. See the below flier for details.
You can buy a canvas from us or use your own, but it must be 3" square. All finished canvases are due by Friday. They will be auctioned on July 21st at a special event. All canvases will be sold for $20 with proceeds donated to the Natural Wildlife Federation. (My contribution below: BP Vulture)
