I’m very picky about giveaways, but when this one came along I knew it fit the bill because I’d promote their cause any day. RxArt is a nonprofit that works with the latest and greatest contemporary artists (William Wegman, Sol LeWitt, Frank Stella etc.,) to place site-specific installations in hospitals and outpatient centers. Their ultimate goal is to transform these cold, sterile environments into happy escapes with the power of visual art. Their latest and greatest project is a CAT scan machine designed by Jeff Koons, to be unveiled in Chicago’s Advocate Children’s Hospital in the coming months. Sounds awesome, right? Well today they’re giving one lucky reader a set of their super awesome two-edition RxArt coloring books that artists like Takashi Murakami, Ryan McGinness, and a ton of other artists contributed to that you can read about here and here. The first edition of the coloring book is sold out, and many consider it to be a collectors item.
So, all you have to do to enter this awesome giveaway is visit their site and check out what they do, the projects they’ve worked on, and the artists they’ve worked with, and come back here and comment with your favorite project they’ve worked on, or artist they’ve worked with (could be your favorite artist that contributed to the coloring books!) and I will pick one random commenter on Thursday at 8am EST who will receive both coloring books.
UPDATE: thank you for all of your wonderful, touching comments! I’m sure RxArt is incredibly appreciative of your support and insight. And congrats to the winner, Lexie!
