Scott gives Israel painting to Art 321
Art 321 is the very grateful recipient of a large and valuable original painting by Michael Israel. The gift from Joe Scott depicts Marilyn Monroe with a hat and measures 4 feet by 6 feet. The artwork was created during a United Way fundraising event by Israel, a performance artist and humanitarian, who is world-famous for his live action painting. This painting will be on display at Art 321 until it is placed for auction. The date for the auction of this special work of art is yet to be determined and will be advertised at a later date. The gift to Art 321 will provide financial support for the future work and abiding mission of the Casper Artists Guild/Art 321.
