HANNIBAL, Mo. — Works of art created by 15 area community leaders paired with 15 artists/mentors will be auctioned April 28 at the Hannibal Arts Council, 105 S. Main. 

Beginning at 6 p.m., attendees may view the artwork for sale, enjoy hors d’oeuvres/drinks and network.  The art auction begins at 7 p.m.  Tickets are $20 per person in advance ($25 at the door). Due to limited space, registration is required. To buy tickets, call 573-221-6545, stop by 105 S. Main or visit https://hannibalartscouncil.eventbrite.com. All proceeds benefit the Hannibal Arts Council and its programs.  

The artist/mentor/community leader teams for the 3rd annual auction are: 

  • Steve Ayers – Wendy Harrington/HRH Foundation;
  • Lisa Wiese – Stacy Raith;
  • Rebecca Butler – Liz Monroe/International Eyecare;
  • Vilma Holt – Elise Blue/NEMO Humane Society;

The Bad Art by Good People title is truly meant to be tongue in cheek, as the end-product of the community leader working with an artist/mentor will more than likely be good, if not great. Community leaders were matched with artists/mentors by drawing names out of a hat in November.
