Event description

Description

ZIP MKE has selected some of the most evocative photos from its collection of 2,000 photographs, then asked dozens of local artists to interpret those images in the medium, style, and size of their choice. Just as each photo serves to represent a particular ZIP Code of the city--and sometimes re-present a face, a place, or an experience in a positive light--the artists will be re-presenting the images one more time. Their artwork, accompanied by a print of the original photograph, will be auctioned at our October 19th fundraiser.

Artists will indicate the value of their work and set minimum bidding prices; minimum bid increments will be indicated as well.

30% of the sale of each artwork will go to the artist and the photographer of the inspiration photo will receive 10%. The remaining 60% will benefit ZIP MKE's mission and vision as we enter our third year of serving the community through re-imaging, one ZIP Code, one neighborhood, one photograph at a time.
