Burbank’s Arts For All Foundation holds The Secret Art Show this coming Friday evening, November 1, at ATB Studios in Burbank. More than 550 artworks, created on 4″ x 6″ pieces of white paper by people from all walks of life, were donated to BAFA, and can be claimed for a donation of $40 each at the fundraiser. The artworks are signed on the back of each piece, and the name of the artist will be revealed with every $40 donation.
Some of the submissions are by an award-winning animator, a major celebrity, a student, a City official, a photographer and more. Some individual artists are very well-known, others are just regular folks with a penchant for art.
All of the artists’ names who have submitted art to The Secret Art Show can be found on the event’s website. Samples of some of the works can also be previewed online. Tickets can be purchased online via The Secret Art Show website as well.
General admission tickets are $10 each, and are for entry between 7:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. VIP admission costs $50 each and are for the special preview sale starting at 6:30 p.m. There is a limit of 10 preview art cards per VIP admission.
“We are overwhelmed by the amazing artists, celebrities, dignitaries, local talents, students and animators who have donated their time to create original works of art to benefit the much needed art programs for Burbank public school students,” says Trena Pitchford, BAFA’s Director of Development. “The artwork is simply fantastic and I encourage everyone to come out for a fun filled evening.”
The wine and cheese reception will be hosted by Rosenthal Estate Winery. There will be music and also a live art performance by expressionist artist Randall Williams.
All proceeds benefit the Arts For All Foundation, a nonprofit group that works to ensure all Burbank public school children receive arts enrichment, through grants and funding for a variety of programs for all ages. ATB Studios is located at 157 W. Providencia Ave., just north of Lake St., in Burbank.
