ART FOR OBAMA is an online auction of photographs by sixty of the world’s most prominent artists and photographers. All proceeds will be given directly to MoveOn and to the NAACP Voter Fund, organizations working hard to get out the vote in low-income neighborhoods in swing states such as Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Florida and Virginia.
WHO WE ARE
ART FOR OBAMA is a group of five artists who have come together to help the Obama campaign. Because we cannot afford to make large donations ourselves, we want to bring together the leaders of our community to help create change. We are all unpaid volunteers.
