Riverside's Giant Oranges shrink and multiply in new project which will raise money for
the Riverside Art Museum.
The new project is called OrangeAID.
In 2006 the Art Alliance of the Riverside Art Museum created a giant orange project which scattered artist-inspired fiberglass fruit around Riverside streets. This time they have shrunk the oranges and will be creating a grove of over 100 small fiberglass oranges created by local artists. Artists have been asked to use the small oranges as a unique canvas for their talents for this fundraiser.
Each orange is just a bit bigger than a basketball and weighs about 9 pounds. When finished, all 120 oranges will be displayed in an orange 'grove' show at the Riverside Art Museum. On November 9, 2012 there will be a benefit event from 5:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at which the oranges will be given to sponsors through a lottery. All proceeds from the sponsorships of small oranges will benefit the Riverside Art Museum and its many exceptional educational programs and exhibits. A limited selection of art oranges will be up for silent auction.
If you wish to be a sponsor to guarantee getting your hands on one of these unique art oranges, contact Kathy Allavie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
