A great Charity, and group art show!
#TwitterArtExhibit utilizes social media and public engagement to generate income for charities and nonprofit organizations. In the past, #TwitterArtExhibit has generated funds for a library suffering from deep funding cuts to purchase much-needed children’s books, for an abused women’s shelter seeking to improve the lives of the families they serve, and for an arts organization mentoring underprivileged young adults in preparation for careers in the visual arts.
• Artists worldwide donate postcard-sized, handmade original artwork to the #TwitterArtExhibit.
• organizes a local, physical showcasing of the art.
• The public is invited to buy the art at an affordable, flat price.
• 100% of proceeds go to the charity.
• This provides artists with new exhibition opportunities, new audiences and benefactors, and appeals to art enthusiasts all over the world.
• It’s fun!
Currently in exhibit in Orlando Florida.
All the painters share the same canvas. As you paint onto the canvas, you also see other people paint. The painting can at any time be signed by one of the painters, who then becomes the owner of the piece. When the painting is signed, the canvas is cleared for all the other painters, and another painting can be produced.
The signed painting is for sale in the gallery in an edition of one. When the painting is sold, it's shipped to the buyer printed on high quality canvas (40x50cm) and the money, minus production costs and gallery commission (50%), is transferred to the owner.
The price of each painting is calculated using the Paintshop Rank™ algorithm and updated daily"

Such a fun project and there are some interesting and sometimes disturbing pieces coming out of this collaboration, I also enjoy the anonymity of it all. Check it out it's addictive.
