You probably know about Worldchanging's upcoming fundraiser, Future City, which features a discussion between our own mayor, Mike McGinn, and Sam Adams, the mayor Portland, that will be moderated by Alex Steffen, the Executive director of Worldchanging; but did you know they are looking for artists to decorate tablecloths? From an email I received yesterday:
Worldchanging is celebrating another year with a fundraiser called "Future City" on Oct 1st.
As part of the event design, we are searching for artists to work their magic on the plain, white circular tablecloths that will drape 15+ tables. They can be painted, or what not, as long as the colors are drawn from those on the book and shades and tints of grey. We hope that you would illustrate "growth" and/or "future cities" in your art.
We will be distributing the cloths by Saturday at the latest and hope to have them completed by next Wed. You can design one or a couple. If you have friends that would like to design one, let us know.
If you sign up by Friday, we will credit you in the program as well.
Please forward this on to anyone else you think may want to participate.
Feel free to contact me with any questions!
Let me know if you're interested and I'd be happy to put you in touch with Morgan.
