Synchronized Chaos (http://www.synchchaos.com
), a new art/cultural/variety webzine inspired by the mathematical concept of chaos theory (systems with organization that's not easily apparent until you look more closely at their beginnings) is hosting a benefit art/writing auction/sale, where some of our featured artists (or any of our volunteers) will create a personalized piece just for you or someone else, at your request. Great for holiday gifts or a special memento to have at home.
Where the funds go: ( Collapse )
Our format is modeled on the Sweet Charity art and writing auctions which normally assist causes such as rape/sexual assault survivor services and international relief, and which raised tens of thousands for the Writer’s Guild of America’s Foundation for those experiencing severe difficulties while out of work during last winter’s strike. http://www.sweet-charity.net/
And if you have extra art for a benefit auction please check out the lovely folks at http://www.helphealfran.org
- they’re putting on something similar for performance artist Fran Varian who’s ill with Lyme disease.
