The Aldas Project is a philanthropic daily art project by Kristy Modarelli. Here are the details:
I am a mixed media artist, generally working in sculpture and installation art, who is venturing out of my comfort zone for this special project. The Aldas Project: 366 Drawings for Good, is a year-long project, beginning January 1, 2012. “Aldas” (pronounced ull-dosh), is the Hungarian word for “blessing”. The idea for this project is two-fold – a personal challenge to create an original drawing every day, for a year, and to raise money for three of my favorite non-profit organizations: 826 National, The Schoerke Foundation, and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Each drawing, made of archival materials, will be sold for $100, with $25 going to the buyer’s choice of the three charities. There are no additional fees of any kind, including shipping.
