The Twitter Art Exhibit is an annual event created by the excellent artist David Sandum. Anyone can create a piece of original postcard-sized artwork and send it in, where it will be exhibited to raise money for charity. This year the exhibition is taking place in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, USA and the charity is Horry County Disabilities and Special Needs. As the name implies, Twitter is used extensively to promote the exhibition and it’s lovely to follow the account and see the huge variety of contributions.
It’s a great idea and a great cause and this will be my fourth year of being involved. I’ve just finished my postcard and will be posting it at the weekend. My previous postcards have sold quite quickly and I’m hoping this year will be the same.
There’s still time to get involved – if you’re interested, details are here.
