Pick Up the Pieces Art Auction
Benefiting disaster victims in Texas and Oklahoma
August 17, 2013
13331 Preston Road , Dallas, TX
Pick up the Pieces is an opportunity for regional artists to provide much needed support for the victims of tornadoes in the neighboring cities of Cleburne, Granbury, and Shawnee OK. Because of the overwhelming catastrophes in West, TX and Moore, OK that absorbed the majority of media and national attention, and for good reason; those who suffered great loss and casualties in these regional storms have not been the recipients of a great deal of press or fundraising efforts.
Red River Reclamation is working with contacts in these communities to partner with the artists and the greater art community of North Texas to raise funds for our neighboring tornado victims through an art auction. No, we are not asking for you to donate a work of art, we are asking you to create a work of art from debris collected from these catastrophic sites. Tornado debris is being collected and will be available for local artists to sift through and select from June 16 and 17. Participating artists will then have until August 10 to complete and deliver their works of art .
100% of the auction proceeds will be equally distributed to the victims in Cleburne, Granbury and Shawnee. This fundraising event will endeavor to raise money AND awareness of the need to assist our neighbors.
The exhibition and auction will be presented August 17.
