Artists needed to save city fountains

If you have artistic skills, you can help in the effort to restore Kansas City Fountains, including several in Midtown.

The non-profit City of Fountains Foundation is asking artists to submit their original works (no photography or digital creations) for an on-line auction to take place Sept. 2-16, 2013. Half of the proceeds from the auction will go to the participating artists whose framed creations sell on-line, and half to the foundation’s Wish Upon a Fountain campaign.

Artists may learn more about the auction campaign, including the locations of area fountains, and submit their favorite art for auction at Deadline for submission is Aug. 28. Works selected for auction will be displayed at a gallery location for public viewing while the auction is live from Sept. 2-16
