Posted on October 7, 2008 Under Art

It seems Etsy’s crafty influence has rubbed off on eBay, and with good reason. Melbourne artists have donated their work for FUSION 2008, a global street art charity auction that benefits Kids Under Cover. By buying a print, individuals can help the organization raise money to construct bungalows for families and educational scholarships for homeless youth. The Aussie organizers at nearby university RMIT explain that “artists are donating fresh work for this exhibition, and all of it is available to you no matter where you live, whether it be in New York, London, Paris, Melbourne, or in some god forsaken place in the middle of nowhere.” Most of the prints and collages are only available for the next four days.
