BENEFITING: OCALA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA INC
HOURS PLEDGED: 20
The art instruments will be sold, benefitting the Ocala Symphony Orchestra. I will encourage the buyers to donate the instruments (especially the larger ones) to schools where they can be publicly displayed to encourage arts in the schools.
The violin in the photos is the first finished instrument I did, titled "The Colors of Renaissance." The black and white photos were all taken by me in Italy. This is the same style I will use on the rest of the symphony instruments, however each will have a different theme. For example, one of the larger ones (maybe a cello or standing bass) will have children's faces – and will be displayed at an elementary school hopefully. I will take all of the photographs, everything will be original.
The money I need is to purchase used instruments and art supplies (all of the photos will be printed, paint, and the entire symphony of instruments will need to be coated for public display).
