Original Art Raffle Today, June 13!!

In honor of the Global Giving matching grant, we're raffling off Big and Small Fish, a painting by Seth-o Omollo, one of the artists we work with in Kisumu Kenya.  Donate on our Global Giving project pages here or here.

10$ donation = 1 raffle ticket
50$ donation = 7 raffle tickets
100$ donation = 15 raffle tickets

Big and Small Fish is beautifully framed using recycled wood from Maine barn doors.  The dimmensions are 12 3/8 X 8 1/4 and is valued at 400$.  Seth-o Omollo is part of a street artist's collective in Kisumu Kenya and has exhibited work in Kisumu, Nairobi and Portland, Maine.

The raffle drawing will take place on June 14, and the painting will be bubble wrapped within an inch of its life and mailed to the winner.  Half of the proceeds will go to Maria's Libraries, and the other half will go to the artist himself.  It's a great way to support libraries and local artists in Kenya!

For those of you in New York City, be sure to check our our first ever Maria's Libraries Salon at the Drink in Williamsburg on June 13 from 7-9.  This is a party and a nerdfest, what could be better?  You can check out the deets
