The artist/mentor/community leader teams for the fifth Annual Bad Art by Good People art auction fundraiser are:

  • Steve Ayers/Ayers Pottery – Justin Gibson/Benson Financial Group
  • Peggy Burchard-Ballard – Clint Graham/Hannibal Public Schools
  • Rebecca Butler/The Budding Artist – Melissa Cummins/Blessing-Rieman College of Nursing & Health Sciences
  • Kim Caisse – Frannie Altheide/HNB Bank
  • Todd Damotte – Dr. Ken Mueller/International Eyecare Center
  • Becky Evans – Kira Parker/F&M Bank

  • Vilma Holt – Paige Pfeiffer/Hannibal Area Chamber of Commerce
  • Deb Scoggin-Myers – Emily Trevathan/Twisted Juniper Yoga/Prestige Realty/Douglass Community Services.

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.
