Donate to the January Art Auction
December 16, 2010
Dear PS1 blog reader,
We are writing you because you have had a significant impact on PS1 in the past year, whether by donating your time, your effort, your art, your presence, or simply your unfailing support. No matter what it has been, we would not be where we are today without you, which is why we are approaching you (as a member of our tight-knit yet extended community) to humbly request a donation of art, objects, services, etc. for our fundraising auction in January.
We will be accepting items by mail 805 E. Washington St. (c/o Eric Asboe) until Jan 15th (or so) and in person at Public Space One, Jan 17-21 from 10 AM-2PM each day. Like last year, we will be working out a deal with a local frame shop to offer a discount for auction winners, so framing your artwork before donating it to us is not necessary. All participants will be promoted through the PS1 website and also receive a postcard of the show signifying their presence in it and support for our cause.
Whether you are able to donate anything at this time, we hope you will consider coming to the auction and the events surrounding it Jan 21-28. Also, donating your time throughout the coming year to any PS1 endeavor is an equally honorable gesture and we always welcome more people getting involved in our space and the arts community.
Thank you for your help in the past. We look forward to working with you again in the future. And in case you were worried about your hard work being auctioned for a fancy beach vacation, we will be sending along information about how the fundraiser money was spent in the past year, and what we plan to do with it this year, soon.
Any further questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
