The citizens of Milwaukee will have the chance to witness the artistic process first-hand, as the 2009 Open Canvas fundraiser comes to town this Saturday to help raise money for the Wisconsin art community.
The event draws together 90 top artists to create individual works of art in a single day before a live audience. The works are then entered into a silent auction with the proceeds benefitting the William F. Eisner museum of Advertising and Design as well as funding a number of scholarships to the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design.
For the past several years, Open Canvas has been helping inspire prospective artists through its partnerships through local businesses, venues and galleries and educational demos and entertainment functions.
The assembled artists represent a range of local and international talent including faculty, alumni and current students from MIAD.
A true community event, Open Canvas will also feature food and drinks from an array of local restaurants for visitors who plan to stay watch the artwork unfold.
