HOLOCAUST MONUMENT AUCTION

Below is a painting of mine that will be put up for auction. The auction is to help raise funds for a holocaust memorial sculpted by my friend and fantastic sculptor Cindy Jackson. Below is more info and links from Cindy on how to purchase and for fellow artists to donate work:

PLEASE DONATE ART TO FUND THE MAKING OF THIS EXTRAORDINARY HOLOCAUST MONUMENT
I have a project that I am trying to fund myself.
It is a huge undertaking- a holocaust memorial. http://www.babiyarrequiem.com
I am asking for the artists in our Art community to donate one painting, drawing, or sculpture to help make this monument happen. As an artist, you know how hard it is sometimes to get funding- I am asking for your help to bring what will be a truly important Monument get made. We might not all have money, but we do all have artworks stuffed in our closets- so all I need right now is a yes, a jpg of the work, dimensions and starting price. I will put the art on the website and link the art to your page (maybe even bringing in a little interest for you.) The auction will be in June- online.
You can go to http://www.babiyarrequiem.com/Babi_pages/art_preview.htm to some pieces that have been donated.
Please do really consider this. A small contribution from you would be a truly great help to me and this project! Thanks so much.
Cindy Jackson
