Rapid City, SD It was a unique opportunity to pick up quality art for a bargain price.
The Goods Fundraiser took over the Dahl Arts center to raise money for several Art Council programs including those for young students.
Tickets cost 40 dollars, and over 60 artists donated an 8 inch by 8 inch piece to be sold via their lottery system.
It was a unique mystery, with all artists remaining anonymous -- and only 25 people could sign up for a chance to win each piece.
Pepper Massey, Dahl Arts Center executive director says, "The Anonymous works were very specifically created so that we could have artists on an even playing field. Emerging artists as well as professional artists hung together. It's all juried so it's very quality work but we want people to fall in love with the art work and take it home not pick it up and purchase it or put their name down for it because they know that it is going to be worth something."
Winners were drawn at random for the works and each piece was only 125-dollars.
