The print suite “The Twenty Views of Dundas” has been accepted into a charity auction at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Organized by the 85-year-old “Friends of the Institute” group, the September 26 Art Perchance event raises money to bus kids to classes and events at the Institute. ArtOrg is very proud that the set made it through the acceptance process and has been chosen to be sold at silent auction. Through this event, the set will be seen by many people, and bring well-deserved regional attention to the project and its artists. (ArtOrg has donated similar projects in the past–for example the large Northfield Governor’s Ball Lithograph raised $4600 for the Northfield Sesquicentennial, and $2000 for the Laura Baker school.)
