Bad Art by Good People

Local personalities will be given a blank 16 x20 canvas and partnered up with a professional artist to create a piece of art.  These artists will not only be creating a piece of art, they will be fighting for community votes.  Once all the artwork is completed, the election process will begin.

The Bad Art by Good People election will be like nothing the community expects from regular elections. There may be scandals, information may be leaked and many other election no- no’s. Every member of the community is encouraged to vote and vote as many times as they like.  Voting starts September 1, 2022 and will cost $1.00 per vote, anyone can vote. There are no restrictions on age, geography or number of times a person can vote.  Once Gateway Arts Council reaches its funding goal of $10,000, fifty percent of all proceeds above that amount will be given to a local charity.

No election would be complete without the Bad Art Ball and the Art Election is no exception. Gateway Arts Council hosts a Bad Art Ball on October 6, 2022.  This ball will feature a dinner and the “Bad Art” will be auctioned off.

Proceeds from the election will help The Gateway Arts Council provide quality artistic experiences and entertainment to Sidney and the Shelby County community.  Fifty percent of proceeds beyond Gateway’s fundraising goal will go directly to the Shelby County Historical Society.
