Model- Shade Structure

Serious Funny Money is a fundraiser program where the artist design different dollar bills in different denomination to be sold to the public.  The dollar bills are small frame-able and collectible artworks.  The project is inspired by the idea that art can be used as a tool and be used creatively to address and solve life challenges.  This project is not just about artist donating artwork to support a cause.  The ultimate vision is that artist will be paid to design and print money to sell.  Each year the program will select a new beneficiary to raise funds for.  During the first edition the program will be designed to collect donations to benefit the Earth Park and Scrap Bin in Carrollton Georgia.  There will be a small part of the money collected will go to the artist to compensate the artist for materials, support and participation.  As the program grows I hope to increase the artist funding.

Serious Funny Money will be run as a Kickstarter project.  It will allow the project to have multiple pledges (price and donations) and rewards.   The project will be fun and even if it doesn’t collect hordes of money it still promote local artist, the mission of Scrap Bin and the vision of Earth Park.

Kickstarter is designed to be social media friendly and most campaigns success comes from people sharing the project with friends and family.

Model- Shade Structure

The money raised will help create a shade structure for Earth Park.  The Shade structure is designed to include about 15 artist work.  It will be a exciting sculptural structure.  It will be created of meal and have multiple frames that will display art works both permanent  and temporary.  If you are an artist and would like to be notified of the call to artist and be involved in the creating of this project contact Deborah Landry. If you are a welder and would like to create the structure  Please reach out to Deborah Landry and she give you the details and size.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Artist needed to create limited edition prints

The up and coming Carrollton Earth Park is holding a fundraiser to generate money for a shade structure. Our fundraiser, Serious Funny Money, will feature imaginative bills designed by local artists. We are looking for at least eight artists to design one limited edition of ten bills. All bills in each edition will be the same and feature the dollar amount the artist has selected. Bills will be small, around 3”x5” with a maximum size of 5”x7”, and may be constructed from any material the artist chooses–prints on paper, paint, ceramics, wooden or metal sculpture, etc.–keeping in consideration that the budget should be low and the bills should be able to survive shipping. Depending on the success of the fundraiser, a percentage of funds raised will be returned to the artists in an effort to compensate for cost of materials, but this cannot be guaranteed as this is a fundraiser for a non-profit organization, so please keep this in mind when creating your designs. Imaginative designs are encouraged. Don’t be afraid to break from the standard rectangular format.

 

 

Artist Needed to create dollar designs for Unlimited Prints.

The up and coming Carrollton Earth Park is holding a fundraiser to generate money for a shade structure. Our fundraiser, Serious Funny Money, will feature imaginative bills designed by local artists. We are looking for fourteen artists to design money prints. The artist need only worry about designing the matrix or transparency. The fundraising committee will handle the printing of all dollars upon completion of the fundraiser. If the artist chooses, the matrix may be returned to them once printing has concluded. All prints should be either relief prints or transparencies for screen printing. No etchings will be accepted. Bills should be small, around 3”x5” with a maximum of 5”x7”. (The exact dimensions of a dollar bill are 2.61 inches by 6.14 inches). We are looking for four different $5 bill designs, four different $10 bill designs, four different $20 bill designs, and two different $50 bill designs.
