The Giveaway

The Free Art Giveaway 2009. First they handed their names in. Then we drew them out the hat. 1000 people wanted art. Then they got a chance to choose a piece of art and they didn’t know what was taken and only got two tries!  Because we wanted people to take home a piece they loved not just what they could get. Then they took home the art.… It was a brilliant day.
