BlogHer Gulf Auction

Insight from the International Food Futurists

 

There is something about the American spirit that rises to a crisis. And, as we all ponder the future of food following the Gulf Coast oil spill, a group of bloggers is doing something about it.

According to a site called Coolmompicks.com, the BlogHer network has galvanized behind the Gulf with an auction of blog-inspired art.

Each week, a new set of artwork will be auctioned off, with themes such as “Life,” “Humor,” “Geek/Nerdy,” and “Opinion/Editorial.” The photos available this week include touching images of new life in a variety of forms, including the image pictured here, entitled, “Baby Wisher,” by Meredith Winn, Inspired by “Miami,” by Karen Green. As of editorial posting, this item was up to $54 in an 18×24 photo, framed by Fracture.

According to the eBay posting, this original piece was displayed in New York City on August 6, 2010 in the “Life” gallery as part of the 2010 BlogHer Voices of the Year art exhibit and auction benefiting The Nature Conservancy clean up the Gulf of Mexico.
