RED DOT CHICAGO raising money to provide creativity programs for children in hospitals
A Chuck Jones Center for Creativity Chicagoland Charity Art Experience
Friday, December 13, 2019 at 6:30pm, we debut a unique charity art experience where original works of art created specifically for Red Dot Chicago will be displayed. Artwork is donated from artists all over the country for this silent auction bidding event. The works remain anonymous until the bidding is closed. Guests use the silent auction method for bidding using a Red Dot for the "buy it now" amounts listed, unless current bidding exceeds the Red Dot amount. Featured artwork includes Oscar® winning director Chuck Jones, Legendary Director/Animator Eric Goldberg, & more. Artists participating and appearing in studio for the event include Tim Rogerson, Trevor Carlton, ARCY, Daniel Killen, Kenneth Corozza, Ben Olson & more.
"Chuck Jones loved to visit local hospitals and spend time drawing with children in an effort to encourage their imaginations and have a creative outlet. With his inspiration we are equally passionate about creating with children in our community in addition to the wonderful child life services so many of our centers for care provide." says Ben Olson, chairman of the backyard EXPERIENCE. "Red Dot Chicago is our effort to give guests a unique experience as they help us fund this very important effort for children."
