THIS WILL BE A GROUP FUNDRAISING EFFORT TO BID ON BOTTLE CAP BATMAN FOR DONATION TO THE MEDICAL CENTER OF AURORA!
Friday, July 20th, the bottle cap Superheroes series was set to show at Udi's in Olde Town Arvada. Hulk, CAPtain America and Bottle Cap Batman were to be the "stars of the show" - especially Batman since "The Dark Knight Rises" premiere was the same day.
News came of the tragic events in Aurora and it was decided to remove Batman from the show out of respect to the victims.
As many people, I was stunned and heartbroken that such an awful thing happened. Movies are a means to escape our everyday lives - taking us safely to imaginary world. That safe escape was shattered that night as attendees were thrown into a real-life, horrific, movie-like scene.
So I took Batman back to the studio, saddened and wondering what to do with it. Now I'm hoping to help the victims through my art... and I your help to do so.
Bottle Cap Batman is now up for auction with 100 PERCENT of the proceeds going to victims of the Aurora shootings. One gracious, high-bidding donor will not only help those involved recover physically and financially, they will own a capped crusader!
Bottle Cap Batman measures 3' x 3' and is made of bottle caps, metal, ply board, glue, magnets, brad nails and plaster. There is a bat mask made with bottle caps which is detachable & wearable. The Bottle Cap Batman sky beacon is attached with magnets and can be removed for use as a large fridge magnet for a rather large fridge.
