Whether you’ve got an all out gallery or just a sketchbook under the bed, your art could help better the lives of people in suffering in war-torn Darfur.
Art for Darfur, a local group of students, artists, activists, faith communities, educational institutions and non-profit organizations, is collecting all sorts of art to auction off this weekend. That money will go to Darfur Peace Development, one of the few humanitarian aid groups that is still on the ground in Darfur, and is run by Darfuri people for Darfuri people.
If you’d like to donate some of your art for the auction, you can do so now through Thursday, April 15. Just contact Art for Darfur to arrange a pick up. All mediums, styles and crafts are welcome — just keep it PG-13 because there will be small children viewing the art.
Oh, and if you’re looking to spruce up your walls, that auction will be Saturday night at 7 inside SMU’s Owen’s Art Center. During that time you can load up local, affordable art for a great cause — plus, there will be live entertainment, like the interactive Drums Not Guns drum circle, and a performance by African Idol Maurice Kirya.
