Over 58 million Americans (i.e. about 1 in 4 persons) suffer from some form of heart disease, and almost 1 out of 2.4 deaths in the USA result from it. Recognizing the widespread impact of this issue, ShinSpin Art Studios recently accepted the challenge to raise funds by holding an American Heart Association ‘FUNraiser’ Art Auction.

29 established and up-and-coming artists (listed below) have volunteered to donate new and/ or existing artwork varying in a wide range of artistic styles and mediums. Target sale prices for the artwork range from $200 – $2,000 per piece (of course this being an auction these are simply targets) with proceeds being split by percentages of 40%, 30%, and 30% and distributed to the American Heart Association, Artists, and hosting museum respectively.

While the auction is not slated until April, our call for action is now. February is National Heart Disease Awareness Month and we are trying to leverage this as a springboard to generate awareness for this cause and event. A variety of promotion efforts are planned for this event ranging from grassroots efforts to celebrity participation. In addition to supporting this cause by attending and bidding in this auction, anyone can simply make a nominal donation directly to the American Heart Association via the Local Arts for Healthy Heart FUNraiser page: Link to the American Heart Association Donation Page

Confirmed artists for the exhibit and auction are listed immediately below. Collectively, these artists and their artwork have been exhibited in hundreds of galleries throughout the world and published in some of the most respected publications and media outlets. More details and bio’s about the artists coming soon.
