Chank Art "HOORAY!"

Chank Art "HOORAY!"

You can see it listed here: http://shop.ebay.com/merchant/chankdiesel

This painting is being sold in a fundraiser for the St. Anthony West Neighborhood Organization. It’s a big painting on thin plywood, measuring about 8 feet by 2 feet, so I’d really like to sell it to somebody in NE so I don’t have to ship it elsewhere. It’s my patriotic inaugural art which was on display as a public art piece on the Art Jones lawn at 2nd St & 3rd Ave NE. Now it’s been taken down and it’s for sale at a great opening bid of only $49.

Here’s a great chance to get a significant piece of Chank Art at a great price if you can come over here and pick it up in person. 100% of the sale price of this font will be donated to STAWNO to help them raise money to move the Pioneers statue over to the new BF Nelson park site. This painting was featured on numerous blogs in the past few months. Like these:

Here’s Ding standing atop some urban rubble next to the Pioneers sculpture near the BF Nelson park site. The Pioneers sculpture weighs 25 tons and will be moved across the street once the area is tidied up a bit. The rubble will be hauled off later, too.
