BAD ART BY GOOD PEOPLE ART AUCTION: Works of art created by fifteen area community leaders who were paired with fifteen artists/mentors will be auctioned off. The Bad Art by Good People title is truly meant to be tongue in cheek, as the end-product of the community leader working with an artist/mentor will more than likely be good. Community leaders were matched with artists/mentors by drawing names out of a hat back in November. The Hannibal Arts Council is excited to connect community leaders and artists in a new way and look forward to this very fun fundraiser.
