Art for Obama

Here is your chance to buy art for a cause. I received an email from Whitney Hubbs about a project she is involved in and thought I would pass it on to you. There is some amazing artwork up for grabs from some amazing names. Not all of it is posted on the site yet but check back often. Please nobody bid on the David Maisel. And while your at it loan me a thousand dollars.
Good luck Whitney and friends. Thanks for doing something because you believe in it.

Here are the details.

"Art For Obama" is an online auction of photographs to benefit the

Obama Campaign. The photographs have been donated by the country's 45 most influential and significant Art-Photographers. These photographers have all shown their work in the world's most important museums and galleries. The donated photographs are valued between $800 and $7,000 each.

THE FINANCES
All proceeds will go directly to the Obama Campaign, or to non-profits devoted to helping the Obama campaign.

WHEN
The auction is scheduled to launch on October 1st, and will run for one week.

WHO ARE WE
We are a group of five friends, all artists, who have gotten together to help Obama because we can't afford to give big donations themselves and because we want to help organize the leaders in our community of artists join forces to help create change. We are all volunteers.
