A benefit auction for the Shel Dorf Artist Fund will be held throughout Comic-Con. Proceeds will help send a deserving artist to art school.
The First Annual AFTERCON San Diego, a Fund Raiser for the Shel Dorf Artist Fund. Over 75 artists headlined by literary icon RAY BRADBURY, along with many artists from the movie, television, video game and comics industry. All of the artists are donating custom painted pieces on 12″ x 12″ panels, skateboard decks (donated by McGills Skateboards), and vinyl toys, to be auctioned of through raffles and silent auction.
PRIMO Hawaiian Beer is hosting an open beer lounge, along with downtempo music, for an event that has no cover charge and a $5 suggested donation for those not bidding on art items.
100% of the proceeds are going towards a fund for art in school programs as well as art scholarships to upcoming young artists without means otherwise, winners will be selected through a juried art submission later this year.
We hope you will be excited to either attend, or cover/promote this fund raising event to your friends and media connections. We also welcome your thoughts and recommendations as to how this can become a greater benefit to the art community as well.
Suture Gallery 655 10th Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101 (10th & Market – 5 blocks from the Con)
