Calling All Artists, Poets and Photographers!
March 22, 2017
AFP invites all members everywhere to submit their art and poetry to exhibit at the Diversity Art Showcase at the 54th International Conference on Fundraising, April 30- May 2, 2017, in San Francisco, 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, making the art showcase even more beautiful and meaningful!
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.
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.
Take the challenge—be creative and display your art in San Francisco! 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! Members interested in submitting artwork should complete this online form. Email Tori Burns, CFRE at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (443) 840-3617. She will be happy to provide you with additional information and answer any questions you have.
The deadline to submit is March 31, 2017.
AFP offers its thanks and deep appreciation to The Alford Group for sponsoring the AFP Diversity Art Showcase this year.
