Master's Mystery Art Show

I just received this email and would like to pass it on to you. It's a call for entries from the Master's Mystery Art Show. I participated in the last few years and am going to do it again this year.

The Master’s Mystery Art Show (MMAS) is now ready to launch its fourth years as one of the most interesting and successful events of the Miami Art Season. The MMAS is a high profile benefit that will take place concurrently with Art Bassel Miami Beach 2008 in early December. Its purpose is to contribute to the further development of the Florida International University Master in Fine Arts program. All proceeds will go the Master’s program for scholarships, visiting artists, exhibitions and other projects. The MMAS is already supported by such important sponsors as Lionstone Development, The Ritz Carlton Miami Beach and The Miami Herald, with key galleries, media and artist committed to its success through a high-visibility publicity campaign. We would like to invite you to participate in this exciting community event.

The MMAS will adopt the following format: all exhibited works will be original in a 6” x 9” format and will sell for the fixed price of $50.00. The list of contributing artists, including a host of well-established names, will be widely publicized in advance. Adding to the excitement will be the participation of renowned celebrities in different disciplines and of selected local students. The “mystery” is that the name of the artist for each work is kept secret during the exhibition, only to be revealed at the completion of the sale. Thus the public is invited to “play detective” as they try to identify the artist and be the first to buy the best! The deadline to receive submitted artwork is November 15, 2008

The success of this event and its benefits to the student artists depend on the generosity of artists like you. Last year, there were over 1000 cards donated, and the students raised over $20,000. This year there will be more events, more artists, and more fun, and we would like you to participate too! If you decide to join us, please contribute a work in any medium within the given dimensions. Please remember to sign your cards only on the back! It’s a secret!

Looking forward to receiving your cards!
