One of my favorite contemporary artists/ authors, Seth Apter has pulled together an auction to aid NYC folks affected by Hurricane Sandy. There are several items up for auction, including a copy of Seth's latest book The Pulse of Mixed Media: Secrets and Passions of 100 Artists revealed signed by 30 of the artists featured.
There are also other art books / DVDs. As well as original works by Seth, Pam Carriker, Joanna Pierotti, Linda Woods and many other creative folks who just want to help out. The auctions are in themed bundles, so the auction winners will receive prize packages loaded with goodies!
"100% of the proceeds will benefit The Mayors Fund to Advance New York City. Donations will support immediate aid needs - including water, food and hygiene supplies - as well as long-term relief and restoration efforts. One hundred percent of donations are being dispersed to relief organizations and their efforts." - Seth Apter
