Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
"The LAHFH ReStore contacted area artists and asked them to use their talents to create a piece of art utilizing home improvement materials from the Habitat ReStore. The artists were given a voucher worth $50 to be used at the ReStore. The challenge was to find and purchase materials then turn the reclaimed materials into works of art. This year’s recycled artwork has been displayed at the Spirit Room since January 16."
I particularly like this idea and can see several ways it can be incorporated as a fundraiser. It could work at a garage sale art fair or a a studio clearance sale event also. It would be a great way to get some publicity. It could also be incorporated into a larger event -- a recyling art exhibition area that could be auctioned -- with proceeds being shared with the artists.
