Calling All Artists!
Help Keep The Kids At Children's Hospital Painting!
It's that time of year again .... time to think about the annual Granville Island Ferries Garbage Can Art Contest & Auction which takes place Sunday, September 25, 2005 on Granville Island.
Twenty-five artists will take part in the four hours of creative madness, turning plain metal garbage cans, provided by the event sponsor, Granville Island Ferries, into works of art.
The aritsts provide their time, their art supplies and their great ideas! Granville Island Ferries supplies the garbage cans, tents, water, power and sheltered areas for spray-painting. To keep the artists and crowds in a holiday mood, celtic music is provided throughout the afternoon by Blackthorn.
Three judges from the local arts community award first, second and third place (with modest cash prizes) and the finished collectibles are then auctioned to raise funds to purchase supplies for the art therapy programs at British Columbia's Children's Hospital.
To register for this year's fun, reply by return email providing your full name, your mailing address (including your postal code), your daytime and evening phone numbers (and a cell number if you have one) and your email address. Your registration will be confirmed by return email.
