Silent art auction and Fundraiser
Saturday, June 14 | 3 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. | Shannon’s House

R.S.V.P. YOUR PARTICIPATION | DEADLINE: JUNE 6, 2008
(pretty please r.s.v.p on time. mwah...)
Diorama-O-Rama is a collective art happening and fundraiser. Everyone is invited and encouraged to make and donate a diorama to our silent auction with 100 percent of the proceeds going to our Dallas friend who, for many months, has been displaced from working and living in his Oak Cliff home and is instead living in Bethesda, Maryland, where he is undergoing cutting-edge treatments to kick some cancer butt!
What is a diorama?
It’s a world in a box that’s made however you like. There are no size restrictions, no theme restrictions, and no real rules at all. All dioramas will be displayed outside, so come prepared if your diorama requires special supplies (battery packs, extension cords, etc) for display.
Diorama prize categories could include, but are not limited to: most rad, low rent, olfactory, fluorescent, kinetic, fancy pants, likely to succeed, green (your interpretation), edible, popular, derivative, French, peaceful, anarchic, illuminated, unicorn-esque, nautical, OG, OMFG, doughnut shop-ish, glam rock, and so on. Whatever. It don’t matter. Lets just have fun while creating some good karma and raising lots of money.
This event is open to anyone who wishes to make a diorama or just kick back with our keg of beer, music, bug spray, sunscreen, and nice people. Potluck BBQ contributions are appreciated. Kiddos are absolutely welcome! There will be DJs and bands—names to be announced! If you have any questions email the Diorama-O-Rama contacts.
