HANNIBAL, Mo. — The Hannibal Arts Council kicked off its fourth annual Bad Art by Good People program in November. 

Bad Art by Good People matches local community leaders and area artists/mentors to support the arts by creating works to sell.  Ten local community leaders joined 10 area artists to pair up by drawing names out of a hat to determine who would work together.

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 and in some cases may surprise us all.  Once the community leaders and artists meet and create the works of art, the art will be auctioned off with all proceeds benefiting the Hannibal Arts Council and its programs. 

The Bad Art by Good People auction is to be held at the Hannibal Arts Council on April 25.
