Donation

Has anyone donated an artwork so it could be in a library or school either in the states or overseas?

I never thought of it that way, its quite cool, how does one go about painting for a school?

That's cool. Congratulations Mr Wingo.

Yes I have donated 2 works for auction for a charity in Italy
I was also asked
I believe one has found a home in Venice and another in London
It is nice to know your work is out there in the world
Money has never been the prime reason to paint
Also I have helped children in care produce a mural which the city council now own
I was the one who suggested the mural to a council official I met and he took up the idea
It was a most rewarding experience for not only the kids but me.

Why would one go about it any differently?

I didn't paint it 'for' the school, Mr Bogstandad, I donated a painting from my portfolio.

It was for the Special Education Dept. of a high school in Colorado where I taught the "Containment Program" for three years which was considered to be highly successful. I was also a professional artist at the time and they asked for one of my paintings to put on the wall in that department in my memory. (and now you know "the rest of the story")

Sometimes things get lost in translation. I was just thinking about donating a painting and thought I would ask someone here on FM how "it transpired". When Mr Wingo answered "yes", he has donated a painting. I said that is cool to have your art hanging somewhere for people to see. Then a few post later he explained hOw "It transpired" "The End"?
