Wokingham Borough Council Auction Interactive Art0
John Redwood MP for Wokingham put the finishing touches to a unique piece of interactive art, which is now being auctioned by Wokingham Borough Council in aid of charity.
Visitors to the council’s Shute End offices and borough staff had added their own doodles, scribbles and designs to the canvas as part of a community project highlighting that art is for everybody.
Businesses, organisations and residents can now bid for the painting in a silent auction. The closing date for bids is January 31, 2013.
All proceeds from the auction will go to the Wokingham Borough Mayor’s chosen charity The Link Visiting Scheme whose volunteers visit elderly residents locally to offer friendship and support. The other charity to benefit will be the Starfish Greathearts Foundation, which helps children in South Africa orphaned by HIV and AIDS.
The finished painting, which took several weeks to complete, was unveiled during Wokingham Borough Council’s annual carol concert at Shute End.
The painting is now on display in The Mall Gallery at Shute End. Silent auction bidding forms can be found next to it. Alternatively you can email the mayor’s secretary Victoria Rallis at: [email protected]
