All numbers for the 100 Artist Penny Postcard Series have been taken, but you can still participate. I’m currently looking for artists to launch “Penny For Your Thoughts” books.
There will also likely be other art projects in the future, so please sign-up for the rss feed, follow on twitter or become a fan on facebook. There also may be some cancellations. If you want to be considered if there is a cancellation, please email me.
That penny that others thought was worthless has a buyer who decided that my 10 reasons why this penny is worth $10 were just too good to pass up. The penny was purchased by Conna Craig who is a researcher and writer on foster care and adoption.
Conna actually lives in an area fairly close to where I will be in another two weeks, so we have decided to do the transaction in person in early December instead of through the mail with photos — and maybe even a video. Those I will post when they are available.
That means that the penny experiment has $10 to work with and it’s time to move onto the next stage:
I’m looking for artists that would be willing to donate a bit of their time and talent for the penny experiment project. What I’m hoping to find is 100 different artists who will each create one postcard size piece of art that incorporates a number of their choosing (between 1 and 100) and a penny. In return, the artist will get (if desired) a bio on this website under the image of their artwork, a link to their own website and the knowledge that they helped out a lot of people in need during these difficult economic times.
The size of the art should be somewhere between 3 inches x 5 inches and 5 inches x 8 inches (a small to large postcard) on postcard type material incorporating both a real penny and the number that you choose. The style, color scheme, etc is completely up to you.
The art will be sold with 100% of the money going to purchase food for food banks. If this sounds like something in which you would like to participate, please contact me with five (5) numbers in order of preference that you would like to use for your art (you will only use one of these numbers, but this will allow me to assign one if some have already been taken). Please also feel free to contact me or leave a comment with any questions that you may have.
