Hannibal Arts Council to present Bad Art by Good People
Hannibal, Missouri —
The Hannibal Arts Council is planning to auction off "Bad Art by Good People" this Friday night.
The new and innovative fundraiser pairs local community leaders with area artists/mentors to create artwork.
That art will be auctioned off at a special event at 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 15 at the Hannibal Arts Council.
Tickets are $20 per person and are available at HAC.
Reservations may be made by calling HAC at 573-221-6545 or emailing email@example.com.
All proceeds will benefit the Hannibal Arts Council and its programs.
The Bad Art by Good People title is truly meant to be tongue in cheek, as the end-product of the community leader working with an artist/mentor will more than likely be good and in some cases may surprise us all. Participating community leaders for the inaugural fundraiser include: Dr. Debbie Baumann – Hannibal Regional Healthcare System; Joel Booth - F&M Bank and Trust; Dr. Michael Bukstein – Hannibal Clinic; McKenzie Disselhorst – Hannibal Area Chamber of Commerce; Michael Gaines – Hannibal Arts Council; Mary Lynne Richards - Hannibal Parks & Recreation Department; Mayor Jim Hark – City of Hannibal; Kate Dougherty – Down Country; Julie Leverenz – Hannibal Regional Healthcare System; Rajah Maples – KHQA; Jimmy O’Donnell – James O’Donnell Funeral Home; Stacy Roach – The Gallery Salon; Judge Rachel Bringer-Shepherd – Missouri 10th Judicial Circuit Court; Janet Wells – HNB; Josh Williams – Harold & Louise Assisted Living.
Participating area artists/mentors include: Steve Ayers; Brenda Benson; Rebecca Butler; Kim Caisse; Brenda Beck Fisher; Kelly Eddington; Patricia Garey; Pat Kerns; Sally Poole Kintz; Josh McCurdy; Deb Myers; Stephen Schisler; Cyndi Taylor; Kevin Warning; Lisa Weise.
The Hannibal Arts Council is excited to connect community leaders and artists in a new way by implementing this new fundraising concept, which was modified from ones produced by similar arts organizations in Kansas and Ohio.
