Calling All Artists, Poets and Photographers!
February 12, 2013
We invite AFP members everywhere to submit their art and poetry to exhibit at the Diversity Art Showcase at the 50th International Conference on Fundraising, April 7-9, 2013, in San Diego, CA. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned artist or poet, you are warmly invited to participate. Fundraisers are a diverse group – their diversity unites them and thus makes the art showcase even more beautiful and meaningful!
Submissions of all types of art are encouraged, including painting, photography, drawing, sketches, collage, quilting, computer art, mixed media and sculpture. Also, poetry submissions can include rhymed poetry, free verse, experimental and Haiku.
The Diversity & Inclusion Committee again will be sponsoring an art showcase (located in the conference Marketplace) that spotlights youth art, a local professional artist and the artwork of AFP members. The showcase strives to portray the uniqueness, value and diversity of people through art, photos and poetry.
Take the challenge—be creative and display your art in San Diego! Use your artistic talents to show that philanthropy is truly the “love of humanity.”
AFP’s got talent, so please let us know if you want to display your artwork! E-mail Monica Chui at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (604) 872-1811 x225. She will be happy to provide you with additional information and answer any questions you have.
