Welcome to the Art for Food 365 Day Challenge!
The Art for Food 365 Day Challenge is a year long art experiment with the mission of raising money to help provide more good food to more people.
Every day for one calendar year I will create one piece of original artwork. Each piece will be auctioned off to the highest bidder, with 100% of the proceeds to be donated to the cause.
This project is made possible by it’s sponsors. Each artwork has an integrated space/billboard reserved for the sponsor’s logo. As per the incremental pricing structure, sponsorship opportunities begin at $1, and move up each day. Funds raised through the sponsorships will help me dedicate the year to this project, as well as allow the sponsors, whether they be business owners, celebrities, bloggers, podcasters, or anyone looking to build their brand, gain exposure to new audiences, and get some name recognition, all while taking part in something (hopefully) great.
*** Enhancements are available! Make your billboard more visible. Click here for more info on how to upgrade.
Active participation is highly encouraged. We want to raise as much as possible. Sponsors are encouraged to promote the project, and promote the sale of their branded artwork. At the end of the year, whoever’s piece sells for the most wins a big prize. Prizes will also be awarded to the second and third highest tallies.
Guidelines and ideas to help you promote your artwork are available here. These include suggested email templates, facebook post ideas, twitter and Instagram strategies, and more.
A Note About ‘the Cause’
You might have noticed that we aren’t starting the project with a specific charity in mind. This is deliberate. (Not chicken, or lazy…) Honestly, we don’t know the best way (or ways) to help get More Good Food to More People. This is a concept that can mean many things. We see the conversation as a major component of the project. Throughout the year, you are encouraged to take part and to help us figure out the best way to accomplish this goal. The conversations will take place in our online forum, and we will also be hosting a few live events to bring people together.
We look forward to your voice, your thoughts, your opinions. With your input, this conversation can be as valuable as the ultimate financial donation.

‘What’s in it for me?’ you ask.
This project relies more than anything on the generosity and efforts of our sponsors. We want to do everything possible to make this a valuable investment for you!
